“After the implementation of ‘I Care’ was so successful in one of my high schools, I knew it would be successful in all 26 of my schools. Now that we have implemented for two years, I still feel strongly that ‘I Care’ is providing parents the support they need to help their child at home and is supporting the student academic improvements we are achieving.”

—Former Superintendent; Dougherty County Schools, Albany, Georgia
