Fayette County Public Schools recognizes that when families are engaged in their children's education, the students achieve higher grades, have better attendance and behavior, complete more homework and demonstrate a more positive attitude toward school. We are proud of the diversity of our students and families, and we believe that building meaningful, authentic and culturally inclusive partnerships with our families and their communities is the best way to ensure our students' success in school, careers and life.
Families can be involved in many ways:
- Join the PTA/PTSA or School-Based Decision Making Council (SBDM).
Schedule regular parent-teacher conferences to ask questions about your child’s academic progress, and establish and maintain two-way communication between those meetings.
