Erin Kelly, 
Director of Education

Parent Involvement​

As educators, we take our responsibility for student achievement seriously and personally. We are committed to doing everything we can to provide opportunities for success but there is no substitute for the active participation of parents or guardians in a child's education.

It has been clearly demonstrated in a variety of studies that students excel and schools generally are effective when trust exists between parents and teachers. The staff members of the GECDSB are always willing to earn your trust and we welcome open, two-way communication between home and school.

There are many ways parents and guardians can be involved in their child's learning. Being informed is a valuable first step. Know what is happening in class by talking to your child and their teacher. Express a sincere interest in projects and homework and you should set high, but realistic, expectations for your child's schoolwork. Encourage and recognize his or her special talents and successes at school and share them with family and friends.

Our Board Parent Involvement Committee (GECPIC) organizes learning opportunities for parents  and I encourage you to learn about these workshops and all their activities on the GECPIC Page of this site.
