How do we communicate with, involve, and engage parents?

Students are more successful in the classroom when parents are actively engaged in their student’s learning. Thanks to the CTLS Parent portal, parents will have access to some of the same information that teachers use in CTLS to determine what students know.

Measurably increasing parent engagement to improve student outcomes.​

Parents will know more about their students and will be able to use the instructional resources in CTLS to help students at home.

Parents will also be able to communicate more effectively with teachers and administrators using the communication tools available in the portal.

The goal of CTLS Parent is to make it easier for Cobb families to partner with Cobb teachers and schools whether during digital learning or when students return to face-to-face learning.
