Engagement Office

  • World-class communication and engagement.

    Our Blueprint for the Future: Building the Bridge from Empathy to Excellence outlines our goal as the GCPS Engagement office to "demonstrate world-class communication and engagement through modeling the value GCPS leadership places on transparent, two-way communication to build stakeholder trust and confidence."

    We believe this will be accomplished through several key objectives:

    • Implementing a strategic communications plan to reach the target audiences of families, students, teachers, and the community to share the work of GCPS and solicit input and feedback.
    • Improving two-way communication, engagement, and outreach that connect the community, the schools, and the district office.
    • Enhancing communication practices to engage diverse families in the GCPS community more.
    • Reducing variability in parent and family communication processes across all schools.
    To support this, three teams have been aligned to work collaboratively and strategically in the GCPS Engagement office to support internal and external engagement.

    In addition, the Engagement office also supports many of the partnerships that work to support students and families, such as our PTA, Teacher Advisory Council, Student Advisory Council, Superintendent's Business Advisory Council, Principal for a Day, and many more.
