    The Family and Community Engagement Plan and all other Title I information are available on our school’s website https://www.gcpsk12.org/LawrencevilleES under the Title I Section. Families can also find paper copies of this Family and Community Engagement Plan in our Family Center. 


    It is reviewed and revised at least annually during the Planning Meeting in the spring. All feedback forms from the Planning Meeting are submitted to the Office of Federal Programs for review.  Families who are not able to attend the Planning Meeting have the opportunity to review draft documents and provide input during the draft document review period.


    Lawrenceville communicates with parents in a family-friendly format by translating documents, publishing information on our school’s website, the school marquee, flyers in Friday Folders, grade-level newsletters, Parent Square, email, phone calls, and Family Center workshops.  

    As a parent, you may arrange to speak with a teacher and/or administrator through a phone call or appointment. Please contact the school at  (770) 963-1813 for further information.  Teacher and administrator emails are available on Lawrenceville’s school website at https://www.gcpsk12.org/LawrencevilleES

    We will provide all students with high quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment to meet high academic standards.

    Targeted Foundational Skills: 

    • Read for fluency and comprehension
    • Build math fluency with counting, addition/subtraction, and multiplication


    It is a plan that describes how our school will provide opportunities to improve family engagement that will support student learning at school and at home. All students and their families are invited and encouraged to fully participate in the opportunities described in this plan. The school will provide information and as many opportunities as possible for the participation of all family members. 


    It is a written agreement that outlines how the school, the students, and the family will work together to ensure your child's academic success. An effective School-Family Promise contains the following elements: 

    • Clear learning goals that are linked to the school's improvement plan 
    • Specific skills students will learn during the year 
    • Strategies that staff, families, and students will use to improve student learning 
    • Ways to extend learning at home 
    • Methods teachers and family members will use to communicate about student progress 
    • Opportunities for family members to observe and participate in the classroom 
    • Jointly-developed by families, school staff, students, community business partners, and other stakeholders during our Planning Meeting 
    • Reviewed and revised throughout the year 
    • All families are invited to be involved in the joint development and revision of the School-Family Promise. The Promise is written and reviewed annually with input and feedback from families, teachers, community business partners, and other stakeholders at the Title I Planning Meeting and document review opportunities. 


    • Title I Program Information: Program information is available during the Title I Planning Meeting in the spring and Annual Parent Meetings in the fall, on the school website, and in the Family Center. 
    • Curriculum Information: Knowing what your child is learning at school is important. We will keep you informed throughout the year about what your child is learning during parent meetings, conferences, eCLASS, and on our school website. 
    • Student Progress Monitoring: The Parent Portal is an online resource that allows families to view grades, attendance, schedules, assessment, and your child's results, course history, and much more. Monitoring your child's progress in school is an important way to be engaged. 
    • Parent Resources: We have many resources available for checkout to use at home with your child. We also host several parent workshops to empower you as you work with your child at home.
    • Staff Training: We will train our staff to effectively communicate with you. Your input on how we train our staff is valuable. 
    • Communication: We will communicate, to the extent feasible, all information with you in a language and format you understand. Whenever possible, we will provide interpreters during parent workshops, and academic events. Translation is available for most documents. 
    • Transition Support: Entering a new school can be scary for both students and families. We will host events to make sure both you and your child are aware of what is expected and how you can prepare as your child transitions to a new school level, college, and career.
