What is Be There?
MCSD is partnering with WTVM to share Extraordinary Teachable Moments (ETM) through the Be There parent involvement campaign!
The Muscogee County School District launched the Be There Campaign initiative Wednesday, November 4, 2009. Be There is a research-based, multimedia campaign designed to get parents more involved in their children’s education. One hundred percent (100%) of the research studies compiled by the Parent Institute* indicate that parent involvement has a significant impact on student success. The statistics show with as little as a one-third increase in parent participation, school achievement scores increase dramatically. It only takes a small increase in parent input to see measurable results in student output!
Be There is a national campaign created by Voss and Associates to show parents how easy it is to get involved by inviting them, welcoming them, and inspiring them to “Be There,” using a variety of methods including, but not limited to, public service announcements, feature television interviews and stories, news articles, and printed promotional materials. MCSD is partnering with WTVM (Channel 9) to feature Extraordinary Teachable Moments (ETM)!
