Hello! My name is Candy Meers,


I am the Parent Involvement Coordinator for Eastside Elementary and Van Wert Elementary Schools.

My job is to serve as the link between school and parents.  


  •  I will relay the needs of one to the other;
  • Serve as a school-based intermediary contact for concerns and comments made by parents and community members; 
  •  Provide referrals to community-based services for families;
  •  Expand opportunities for continued learning, voluntary community service and civic participation;
  •  Develop community collaborations;                                              
  •  Promote sharing of power with parents as decision-makers; and help parents understand the educational system so they can  become an advocate for their children. 

Please feel free to contact me by phone at the numbers above or email me at rmeers@polk.k12.ga.us. I am available to aid you with scheduling conferences and assisting you to ensure your student has every opportunity to make his/her learning experience the best!
