Wayne County Schools Parent and Family Engagement
All schools in the Wayne County School System as a part of Title I funding are provided with Parent and Family Engagement programs to assist them in achieving their goals and expectations of helping and keeping parents/families engaged in their child's education. Research shows that children who have families that regularly attend school events and stay updated on grades and other academic endeavors are more likely to excel in school activities and succeed at a higher level than those children who have families that are less active when it comes to academia.
