• Gwinnett County Parent Mentors 

    Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) Parent Mentors help provide parents of students who receive special education services in GCPS information, guidance, and resources to help support their children at home, school and in their communities. 

     GCPS parent mentors have a child who receives or previously received special education services in the district.  This parent perspective allows the parent mentors to relate to the challenges of raising a child who is differently challenged.  They work within the school district to teach and guide families in a variety of ways.  They can provide support and information regarding transition planning topics such as: parent support groups, Social Security Income, Medicaid, other funding sources, agencies that support individuals with disabilities, recreation opportunities, community resources, and more.

     The parent mentors 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.

     For more information, please contact the GCPS parent mentors.
