Welcome to Mitchell County Schools Parent Involvement! Parents are their child’s first and best teacher. We support our families in your efforts to help your child receive a quality education.
The term PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT means the participation of parents in regular, two-way and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities.
Mitchell County School System wants to partner with you to provide all students with a positive and enriching educational experience. We are ready to serve the needs of our parents and caretakers. Please feel free to contact any of our schools in the district or the Federal Programs office with any questions, concerns or ideas that may arise as you and your child travel the road of success.

- Increased likelihood of enrolling in post secondary education
TITLE I Parent Involvement workshops are offered at different times throughout the school year to enhance parent confidence, help parents understand what the students are learning in class, help parents with their children at home, have productive meetings with teachers and establish discipline in class and at home. Parents are always invited and encouraged to participate in their child's education.
Parent Resource Rooms are located at each Title I school: Mitchell County Primary, Mitchell County Elementary, Mitchell County Middle School and Mitchell County High School. The resource rooms are open days that school is in session from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Parents are invited and encouraged to visit the resource rooms at your children's school.
