Three of Haliburton County’s schools are receiving funding for parent engagement projects. School councils across the district have been involved in developing programs that have parents more involved in their child’s education.

Director of Education, Larry Hope says “there is a strong relationship between parent engagement and how successful a child is in school.”

Archie Stouffer Elementary School received $1000 for a Healthy Relationships and Well-Being program, JD Hodgson Elementary School received $1000 for their Valuable Voices program, and Stuart Baker Elementary School received $1000 for the Parent Engagement Tools and Resources program.
