Title I

    Your Opinion Counts!...

Hello Harmony Leland Elementary School Families: 

Cobb County School District Title I Department appreciates the partnerships we have with our families. As the parent/guardian of a child attending a Title I school you are an important part of the Title I team. Your input is vital in the planning and implementation of the family engagement program and activities in our schools and those provided by the District. The focus of all Title I programs is to help eligible students meet the same high academic achievement standards expected of all children, regardless of their socioeconomic status and background. The following surveys are confidential and will be used to assist us with future planning for family engagement initiatives and events.

We appreciate your feedback and thank you for taking the time to complete both of the surveys.  You may complete the surveys online via one of the links below or by completing a paper copy of both surveys that will be coming home with your child the week of April 10, 2017.

Thanks in advance, Tammy Floyd, Parent Facilitator
