Strong, positive engagement with students’ families is essential to the school-family partnership. GSA will provide this through the following:

GSA welcomes parents as key partners supporting their children’s education, and will seek parents as volunteers to support the program. A parent Teacher Organization (PTO) will be established to which all parents are invited. The PTO will meet weekly and will provide a venue for parents to meet with school staff and jointly plan activities in support of the school. Parents will be invited to volunteer at the school, and GSA will recruit parents for positions at the school as they become available, depending on parents’ qualifications.

GSA’s development team is well-connected with educational and community organizations, and will forge specific links with agencies that GSA can partner with.
