PArental information resource center (pirc)
PIRCs receive federal funding and help parents become actively involved in their children’s education through numerous early childhood programs. PIRCs collaborate with schools, social service agencies and others to enhance their services.
PIRC sites are in the following counties: Augusta/Richmond, Berrien,
Burke, Catoosa, Dodge, Fitzgerald/Ben Hill, Hart, Jenkins, Marietta/Cobb, and Rome/Floyd.
Key PIRC programs are Parents As Teachers (PAT) and Parents Assuring Student Success (PASS). PAT is a parent education and family support program serving families throughout pregnancy and until their child enters kindergarten. PASS targets parents of children (K-8) and provides them with motivating techniques to improve their children’s study skills.
