Family Engagement Specialist

Hello, My name is Connie Van Houten; I am the Family Advocate at Ashworth Middle School. As a Family Advocate I am part of the AMS support team. I believe that for a child to be successful it depends greatly on happiness and stability at home. During the past few years, our economy has suffered and so have our children.  Please know that I am here to offer support and will be happy to share resources with you in your time of need.

Another very important part of a child's success is attendance.  I also maintain attendance records on all students.  It is important that you child is at school on time everyday and maintains regular attendance.  As students enter middle school, it is more difficult to catch up on missed work due to absences.  Every child is different and some students may have special circumstances.  If your child needs assistance with attendance concerns, please feel free to call me at 706-625-9545.

Parent Engagement is a major role in my position.  We at Ashworth value our parents and would like to extend an open door policy.  Your input regarding our school is very important.  We offer several workshops, parent meetings, and classes throughout the school year.  Upcoming events will be posted on our website, through newsletters and via text/phone messages.  Please join us in making Ashworth an amazing experience for your family.

Thank you for your continued support and please feel free to email me at

Or call me at 706-625-9545.
