The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE), along with its
partners – The Ritz-Carlton Hotels of Georgia, the Georgia Association of
Educators and the Georgia Foundation for Public Education – is now accepting
applications for the 2015 Georgia Family-Friendly Partnership School Awards.
The annual awards recognize K-12 Title I schools for
their exceptional commitment to fostering welcoming environments that encourage
families to become active partners in improving student achievement and success.
The department launched the initiative in 2010 to assist schools, families and
communities in working together to boost parent involvement in every school in
Georgia. Family engagement helps students earn better grades, and graduate from
high school and enroll in post-secondary education at higher rates.
This award recognizes schools that have gone above and beyond to
create an environment where families and community members feel comfortable and
can help play an important role in supporting their school’s student success.
Applications are due by 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 13,
2014. Click here to access the application form.
