AKS at Home

You are an important partner with your child’s teacher, whether your child is learning at home or at school. To help you support your child’s learning, GCPS is launching a new initiative called AKS at Home. With this project, families will learn ways to help their child practice skills they are learning in class as part of the district’s Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) curriculum.


We invite our families to sign up for a virtual session to learn more about how they can help their child. Please click on the link below for your child’s grade level and subject area to register.
