Carroll Junior High School is a strong advocate of promoting
partnerships that will increase parental involvement as well as
participation in the promotion of social, emotional, and academic growth
of children. When schools work together with families to support
learning, children are inclined to succeed not just in school, but
throughout life. Parental participation in school improves student
learning. Participation of parents and families is critical to the
educational process throughout a child's entire academic career.
