I am excited to write about this month’s blog topic- Family and Parent Engagement. A virtual learning program requires that the student, school, and family all work together to assist students being successful. We have many resources that our school uses to provide support and solicit feedback from parents and guardians. Hopefully, after reading this post you will be more knowledgeable about these resources as well as understand some of the many ways we work with families to support our students.
- Virtual Parent Resource Center– I want to make certain that everyone is familiar with our Virtual Parent Resource Center (VPRC) on our website (http://gradgeorgia.com/divisions/parental-resource-center/). To stay up to date on Parent & Family Engagement events, please visit the VRPC regularly.
- School-Parent Compact- This document outlines how parents, the entire school staff and the students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement. In order to access this file please visit http://gradgeorgia.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Official-GACHS-FY-2018-School-Parent-CompactGuardian-Account-Instructions.pdf . Additionally, please sign, snap (take a picture of), and send this document back to our Parent and Family Engagement Coordinator Deonia Young at Young@gradgeorgia.com
- ESOL Open House- This event is hosted by the Parent and Family Engagement Coordinator and reviews the resources available to our ESOL students.
If you have additional questions about how else we can support our parents or suggestions on how to better bridge the gap between students, parents, and our school please reach out to myself Ms. Young at Deonia.Young@gradgeorgia.com
