Parent and Family Engagement

Welcome to the District Title I Webpage for Parent and Family Engagement!

Due to the COVID-19 school closures across the state in March 2020, the Georgia Department of Education has allowed districts to continue implementation of last year's District Parent-Family Engagement Plan for the 2020-2021 school year.  Glynn County has chosen to do this, with the understanding that revisions can and will be made to the plan, based upon feedback and input from schools, parents and families, and community stakeholders.

The current GCSS District Parent-Family Engagement Plan is available in both English or Spanish as PDF files (posted below).  Printed copies are also available at the GCSS Board of Education (1313 Egmont Street), Central Registration (2900 Albany Street), and at all Title I schools in Glynn County.  For more information about parent-family engagement, please contact Leslie Scarboro, Federal Programs Director, at (912) 267-4100, ext. 1545, or through email at leslie.scarboro@glynn.k12.ga.us.

Each Title I school has a Parent Involvement Coordinator (PIC) to assist parents and families with academic resources and materials to help their children at home. The PICs provide workshops and activities throughout the school year, as well as maintain the Parent Resource Center at their schools.  For more information about your child's school Parent Resource Center, the materials and workshops available to parents and families, or for any questions relating to Title I parent-family engagement, contact your school PIC (contact information is included as a PDF file below) or visit your school webpage, and click the "Title I" link under the "About Us" or "Parents" tabs.

Want to see the PICs in action?  Check out our PIC video - published on the Georgia Department of Education's Family Engagement Partnership Network:  Parent Involvement Coordinators/PRC Video
