Community Collaboration for Children is excited to share the news of the Parent Engagement Meeting Program has started in Marion County Elementary schools. This diversion program acts as a preventative intervention to reduce referrals to CPS for educational neglect. This service would be ideal for children who are considered chronically truant and will be working with school staff to help these families.
