Your participation in your child’s education is extremely important to us. We believe in maintaining regular, two-way communication between home and school. As such, we distribute information to explain how families can work with the school to ensure that students achieve their maximum potential. Please take the time to read all documents from the school.
Federal regulations require us to distribute copies of the following documents to you:
- Title I Family and Community Engagement Plan for Duluth High School
- School-Family Compact for Duluth High School
Duluth High School families are required to sign off after receiving the School-Family Compact for DHS.
Parents can do this by:
- Signing off in MyPaymentsPlus **PREFERRED METHOD** The compact is currently located in MyPaymentsPlus as part of the beginning of year/ orientation information. Parents should log into their MyPaymentsPlus to view and sign off on the compact.
- Printing, signing and returning the Compact Cover Form. Sign and return the Compact Cover form as soon as possible to Kirsten Lombardo in the DHS Parent/Family Center.
The School-Family Compact, Compact Cover Form and Family and Community Engagement Plan are posted under the Title I Documents folder on this webpage. Paper copies of these documents are available in the DHS Parent/Family Center.
Should you have any questions, please contact Kirsten Lombardo, Parent Instructional Coordinator at 770-814-5562.
Family and Community Engagement Plan
The GCPS Title I Family and Community Engagement Plan is Gwinnett County’s plan for involving parents in the academic lives of their children. It establishes the district’s expectations for family engagement and guides the strategies and resources that strengthen school and parent partnerships.
Survey Results: Family Engagement Policy
GCPS and all Title I schools are required to conduct an annual evaluation of the content and effectiveness of its Family Engagement Policy. Each year, the annual evaluation is done through the RBES Parent Perception Survey. Below are the results of Duluth High School's 2018-2019 survey responses.
