Parent & Family Engagement

The Parent & Family Engagement program is crucial to each child throughout his or her school years. Gordon County Schools encourages parents, guardians, and families to be actively involved. When you are actively engaged in your child's education and well-informed about how to help your child achieve success, it positively affects your child's achievement.

Our school's Parent & Family Engagement Specialist helps to bridge the gap between home and school by assisting parents in understanding ways they can help their children with academics. If you have questions or need resources or information to be support your child's education, please reach out to your schools Parent & Family Engagement Specialist.
