Albertville Schools Teaming Up With Local Businesses to Keep Parents Informed
ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (WHNT)– Leaders in Albertville cut the ribbon Tuesday morning on a new partnership with Wayne Farms.
Wayne Farms is a poultry processing facility that is one of the city’s largest employers.
“We have about 1000 employees,” said Melissa Deason with Wayne Farms. “And I’d say about 60 percent of them live within the city limits. So it’s probably a pretty big population.
That’s important because Albertville City Schools is partnering with Wayne Farms to get information about the schools to parents who work at the plant.
“It’s really difficult for working parents to be involved with the different things and activities that are taking place at their school, “said Beth Spouce with Albertville Schools. “And we thought hey, lets go to the work place.”
So the schools will post important information at Wayne Farms to help reach those parents.
“We are hoping that we can get parents involved with their child’s teacher. Maybe with conferences, knowing when there is a need. Just letting them know when their children are excelling. Our main goal is to have parents involved in their child’s education.”
