Posted on 09/30/2011

Mrs. Kelly Ullery, a parent of three children at Pepperell Primary School, has been selected as a member of State Superintendent John Barge’s Parent Advisory Council. The Parent Advisory Council is a group of parents from across the state that meets to discuss education in Georgia. Advisory Council members are particularly focused on how to increase parent and family engagement to ensure student success. Members meet several times throughout the school year with the State School Superintendent serving as advisors and acting as ambassadors

Mrs. Ullery is a graduate of Pepperell High School and is married to Chris Ullery. They have three children from Pre-K to first-grade at Pepperell Primary. Mrs. Ullery is an involved parent at Pepperell Primary School. She serves as the Pepperell Primary PTO President, a member of the Floyd County School District's Superintendent's Advisory Committee, a mentor at Pepperell Primary, and she is an active parent volunteer in the school community. Kelly Ullery is a homemaker and a substitute teacher for the Floyd County School District. 

"Mrs. Ullery is passionate about serving others and her willingness to assist with instructional support and parent involvement at our school is to be commended,” stated Carmen Jones, principal of Pepperell Primary. Jones added, “She is an asset to the Pepperell community and an asset to the Floyd County School District as she represents our school and community on the State Superintendent's Advisory Committee."

The parents participating on the State Superintendent’s Parent Advisory Council share the information learned with members of their communities, other families, and schools. Parents are nominated to serve by their local school district at the beginning of each school year. Members are chosen by a committee of Georgia Department of Education representatives based on the applicant’s response to questions. During the meetings parents provide feedback and input on new policies, projects, and materials that influence and impact students and their families.
