    Family and School Partnerships

  • The Family Institute is designed to strengthen the capacity of families and other learning guardians through learning sessions in support of the academic achievement of students. The PGCPS Family Institute is the district's newest approach to providing a network of support for our community. All learning sessions will be free and will offer a wide variety of workshop topics that not only address how parents/families can support their students in school, but also how they can enrich their own lives. Workshops will be categorized into three strands:  

    STRAND I 
     Family Empowerment: These sessions focus on child development, effective parenting practices, parent leadership, and advocacy. 

    STRAND II
    21st Century Learners: These sessions seek to foster an in-depth understanding of a student's grade-level curriculum, assessments as well as District-wide initiatives, academic supports, policies and procedures. 
     STRAND III
    Health and Wellness: These sessions emphasize the importance of health and wellness. Topics address the physical, social and emotional well-being of families. 

    STRAND IV
    PGCPS Connects: Designed for PGCPS staff. Sessions aim to equip school and office staff with best practices in family and community engagement.
