Guidelines for Parental Involvement in AGSD Schools

At AGSD, we believe that children are most successful when families are involved in their education. In AGSD, district administration, principals, teachers, and parents/guardians all have important roles to play.

Children achieve success when families are engaged in their education. In partnerships, each level has roles and responsibilities in supporting academic achievement and student success.

District Administration

  • Makes high-quality family communication and engagement a priority districtwide.
  • Provides regular opportunities for families to participate in dialogue on districtwide issues through focus groups and other family groups.
  • Makes family communication and engagement an integral part of the district’s professional evaluation process.


  • Enhance family communication and engagement by empowering all school staff to communicate and work closely with families.
  • Treat families as respected and valued partners in their children’s education.
