At-home help for parents

As part of Gwinnett County Public Schools’ family engagement initiative, the school district seeks to empower parents with tools that allow them to help their children at home. Our AKS at Home project provides Math and Literacy support, for grades K-5, to families so that they truly are partners in their children’s learning. Zoom meetings are scheduled for you to attend to quickly learn how you can help your child in Math and Literacy. All meetings are recorded and tools are posted in case you can't make the live session. This support is available for families to access in the format that fits them and their schedule best. Click on the .pdf file below to view a printable schedule with upcoming meeting dates, times, and links.

We invite our families to take advantage of AKS at Home to gain access to live virtual meetings, recorded meetings to best fit your schedule, and to the parent tip sheets. If you have any questions, please contact Vicki Diaz (Shiloh ES Parent Outreach Liaison) @ 770-736-2129
