Parent and Family Engagement at Rabun County Schools

Image result for parent and family engagement

Welcome to the Rabun County School System  Parent and Family Engagement Webpage!  


Both RCPS and RCES are  Title 1 Schools and  we are dedicated to fostering partnerships between home and school.


Most children have two main educators in their lives – their parents/guardians, and their teachers. Parents/guardians are the prime educators until the child starts school, and they remain the major influence on their children’s learning throughout school. The school and parents both have crucial roles to play.  Research has consistently shown that parental involvement in children’s education makes a positive difference in student achievement.


The term PARENT and FAMILY ENGAGEMENT means the participation of parents/guardians in regular, two-way and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities.


The Rabun County School System wants to partner with you to provide all students with a positive and enriching educational experience.  We are committed to providing information, opportunities, and resources to enable parents and guardians to be involved in their child’s academic experience.  Please contact any of the staff listed below to learn about the opportunities that are available and how you can be involved at your child’s school.
