The Social Circle (Georgia) School System is in the first year of full implementation of mastery learning in reading and mathematics for grades K-5. In response to a state mandate for competency-based education, the board of education adopted a program which included mastery learning and promotion standards. In order to fulfill the goal of informing parents of the program, the following six approaches were planned and implemented: (1) a newsletter from the PTA; (2) newspaper articles and radio spots; (3) original school plays depicting the mastery learning instructional process performed at each grade level; (4) neighborhood teas where parents learned how they could help their children; (5) notices displayed and distributed at local large business plants; and (6) a parent volunteer program.
