Session 2: K-5 families invited to virtual AKS at Home sessions to support their child’s learning

Parents and caregivers are important education partners in their child’s education. With the school district’s quarterly AKS at Home initiative, families of students in grades K-5 are able to learn ways to help their children practice the key skills they are learning in language arts and math through live, grade-specific Zoom sessions, recorded sessions, and helpful tipsheets.

The next round of live virtual K-5 sessions is planned for Nov. 15-17 to support learning in the 2nd quarter of the year. (See the schedule below.) Each nine weeks, the district rolls out new Zoom sessions and tipsheets to support a key concept for each elementary grade level in the content areas of language arts and mathematics. Sessions are hosted by parent instructional coordinators who staff Family Engagement Centers in the district’s Title I schools and work with teachers throughout the district. Interpretation will be provided in Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese, and Chinese. The sessions are open to all GCPS families.

Register for the grade-specific Zoom sessions on the AKS at Home webpage. If you’re unable to participate, you can find tipsheets online and view recordings of the sessions at your convenience.
