Family Resources

  • Serving Families of Students Who Receive Special Education Services

    Gwinnett County Public School System’s (GCPS) parent engagement team provides parents of students with disabilities with information, guidance, and resources to support students at home, school and in their communities.

    Supporting success and better outcomes for students with disabilities, we work to build a bridge between parents, administrators, and teachers. We strive to help families find positive solutions and support collaboration with their child's teachers and school administrators. We also provide information to help connect families and individuals with disabilities to resources in their community.

    Each school year, we offer monthly parent trainings and other informational sessions about topics important to students with disabilities and their families. We collaborate with school administrators and teachers, supporting educators in their efforts to help families and students plan for and achieve their educational and post-secondary goals.

    Our office provides information about transition planning, agencies that support individuals with disabilities, Medicaid waivers, special education issues, support groups, disability funding resources, community resources, and other information related to disabilities and special education.

    Please visit our Special Education Parent Toolkit for additional information related to community resources.
