• What Parents Need to Know About Copyright Piracy

    Part of the ESSA law requires schools to provide parents with materials and training to help them work with their children to improve their children’s achievement, such as literacy training and using technology, which includes educating them about the harms of copyright piracy. This Power Tip provides resources, lesson plan ideas, keywords, and a video of how schools can meet this requirement and inform their families about copyright piracy.

Supporting Your Child Academically

  • Students benefit in many areas when they have a significant adult in their life--parent, guardian, grandparent, etc. -- that is involved in their education. Many years of research, conducted by numerous researchers, tells that benefits include higher student achievement, better attendance, and more positive behavior. This is true for all ages and types of students, and for all family income and social status levels.

    The following* are examples of ways that parents and guardians can be involved with their children's education. Even one thing can contribute to positively impacting a child's academic progress!

     

    • Read with your child and talk about the books and stories you read
    • Help your child with homework assignments
    • Organize and monitor your child's time
    • Tutor your child with materials and instructions provided by teachers, or resources found on-line
    • Attend and actively support school activities
    • Volunteer in classrooms, on fieldtrips, or for special events
    • Continue to be involved as your child is in middle and high school
    • Attend parent-teacher meetings
    • Talk with your child about school on a daily basis
    • Be an advocate for your child to make sure that their needs are being met
    • If a problem arises, address it quickly by requesting a meeting with the teacher
    • Advise the teacher of any issues at home that may affect the child's school performance
    • Vote in school board elections
    • Encourage your child on successes and support them on poor performances
    • Take classes at a community college or adult education program to demonstrate to your child that learning is important
    • Participate in school-offerings for parents, such a parent informational meetings, the PTA, school advisory councils and other committees
    • Consider involving your child's grandparents, or older siblings

  • Why Georgia Standards of Excellence?

     

    On February 19, 2015, the State Board of Education (SBOE) voted to rename the ELA and Mathematics standards to the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE). The recently revised and SBOE approved ELA and Mathematics standards for implementation beginning for the 2015-2016 school year will be called the ELA and Mathematics Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE).
