Parental Involvement Policy

Goodpine Middle School maintains that a quality education for our students is a top priority, as well as a joint effort of the administration, faculty, students, and parents.  Goodpine Middle School offers many opportunities for parents to be a part of their child’s educational experience.  We believe that parental involvement is a vital role in a child’s education.
