Parents and families are important to the learning opportunity. DCPS has created a Parent Resource Guide to show you how to contribute to a successful journey for your kid. The Parent Resource Guide is provided here or you can call the Family Engagement and Community Engagement Office at 904.390.2960 for more information.
