While Bibb students are off enjoying their summer break, some of their parents got some classroom time Wednesday.

With almost a third of their budget potentially on the chopping block for 2014, the school district's Welcome Center still plans to offer efficacy training classes for parents.

The three-hour course teaches parents how to promote studying and other healthy habits at home.

"It's about strategizing," says parent academic instructor Tamica Means."We're here to make sure we give parents the proper tools that they need so they can assist their children with learning."

The program is paid for through Title 1, but for parents, the year-round classes are free to attend.
