Pridgen calls for mandatory parent assembly

By Jill Terreri

Council President Darius G. Pridgen is calling on the Board of Education to hold mandatory assemblies at the beginning of the school year in each school for parents or guardians. 

The assembly will help prepare parents for what the year holds, he said, adding that while some parents are involved, it's "criminal" what some parents are not doing for their children. 

The Council adopted the measure unanimously on Tuesday.

Pridgen, a former school board member, is recommending that the assembly cover the district's:

  • Parent involvement policy
  • Parent engagement strategy
  • Code of conduct
  • Parent Portal

Other topics include Common Core standards, and meeting with teachers.

The resolution was sent to Superintendent Pamela Brown and Board President Barbara Seals Nevergold.
