Elementary Education and Student Support
The Department of Elementary Education and Student Support is focused on ensuring that each and every student arrives ready for school, has an engaging and fulfilling personalized school experience, and launches into life ready for their future.
Beginning with school readiness in mind, the Department leads the work of partnering with families to ensure that their children are ready for Kindergarten through a wide variety of community partnerships and early childhood supports. From Kindergarten through graduation, the Department is focused on providing teachers, schools, students, and families with supports that ensure high-quality, future-preparatory instruction is made available every day and for every student including our multilingual learners and international students. Finally, the Department is responsible for managing GCPS’ charter school authorization process and the curriculum design for new innovative district schools.
