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 (Charlene.Holder@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 - COMING SOON. 

The purpose for the Title I Parent Liaison 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 in 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.
