The Office of Family and Public Engagement and the Office of Teaching and Learning collaborated to create grade specific Parent Guides. These guide gives you the tools you need to support your child’s learning at home. In this booklet, you’ll find strategies based on the DCPS curriculum to help your child meet his or her learning goals. You’ll have a better understanding of what your child is learning in school and how you can further learning at home.
For High School students, the guides also provide tips for families on how to help your child successfully navigate the process to and through college.
In addition, all Parent Curriculum guides provide specific strategies to implement at home for DC Public Schools’ new Cornerstone assignments. Cornerstone assignments are high-quality, in-depth activities offered across the district that all DC Public Schools students will participate in during each unit of study. These guides provide you with four sample Cornerstone assignments that your child may experience along with tips and suggestions on ways to support them at home.
