Message from Superintendent Richard Woods

Welcome to the Georgia Department of Education's Parent Guide. I hope you will bookmark this page and visit us frequently for the most up-to-date information about education in Georgia as well as resources designed to serve parents throughout their child's education. When it comes to parent involvement, the research is clear when schools and families support each other, students of all backgrounds and ability levels achieve at higher levels. As a parent of a high school sophomore and a former school administrator, I know that parents are their child's first teachers and have a wealth of information to share with educators about their students. We hope that the information provided on this page will help facilitate your student's success.
