Parent & Family Engagement Policy
Georgia Cyber Academy (GCA) believes that family engagement involves the participation of parents and family members in regular two-way meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities. Our family engagement program and activities are designed to ensure that:
- Parents play an integral role in assisting their child’s learning.
- Parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education.
- Parents feel supported and empowered by staff.
- Parents are full partners in their child’s education and are included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child.
- Parents feel connected to other GCA families and the GCA community as a whole.
GCA is identified as a Title I district and school as part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Title I is designed to support state and local school reform efforts tied to the challenging state academic standards to improve teaching and learning for students. Title I programs must be based on effective means of improving student achievement and include strategies to support family engagement. All Title I schools must jointly develop with parents and family members a written parent and family engagement policy.
Meaningful Input Opportunities
Input and suggestions from parents, Learning Coaches, family members, and community partners are an essential component of the district and school improvement process. GCA will host the following online meetings for the purpose of sharing information and providing a platform for input into our district and school planning. Surveys will also be provided if stakeholders are unable to attend live or watch the recordings.
