Family Engagement at GSMST
The Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science, and Technology Family Engagement mission is to support families and staff, as they support their students throughout this unique and challenging experience. We will learn from each other, sharing experiences and knowledge in a diverse cultural environment, anticipating that this engagement will culminate in students achieving their best performance and academic success.
If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please feel free to contact our Parent Liaison:
Parent Liaison - Family Engagement
Office Hours: 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Our Parent Liaison will be available not only to welcome families into the school building but also to welcome them into the learning process. Through training sessions, workshops, and multiple forms of communication, parents and guardians will grow in their ability to support their students academically.
Family and Community Engagement Plan
While your student may receive instruction during the school day, we know that a child’s first and most important teachers are parents and family members. We know you play an integral role in the education of your child, and we want to encourage and support you to be actively involved in your child’s school. We need your input, your suggestions, and your perspective to make decisions about your child’s school experience.
Be Engaged Session
Intended for parents/guardians, "Be Engaged" is a two-hour guided tour through GSMST's website, Student Handbook, and Parent Portal. Participants will be able to find the answers to common questions and, consequently, be better prepared to help their students succeed academically. If you want to participate in one of our next sessions, sign up by filling out THIS FORM!
