Dear PHS Families, Faculty, and Staff, 

I would like to introduce myself to all of you.  I am the Title I Parent Facilitator for Pebblebrook High School, Ms. Holder (cholder@cobbk12.org).  My office is located in the main building.  Due to the building being under construction with limited space I have created a virtual Parent Resource Center that you can use to help answer some of the most frequently asked questions (Click here to Access the VIRTUAL PARENT RESOURCE CENTER). 

The purpose for the Title I Parent Liason is to assist in the building of capacity for parental involvement at Pebblebrook High School. Parental involvement as, “the participation of parents in a regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities including: 

  • Assisting their child’s learning; 
  • Being actively involved int their child’s education in school; 
  • Serving as full partners in their child’s education and being included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child; and 
  • Assist in the evaluation of the parent involvement programs at their school. 

As a Title I Parent Facilitator, my number one priority is to assist parent in the following areas: 

  • Conduct Parent Workshops. 
  • Assist with ParentVUE username and password trouble shooting. 
  • Assist with scheduling Parent/Teacher conferences as needed. 
  • Assist in facilitating open dialogue and communication between parents and Pebblebrook High school.
