Parent & Family Supports

While many parents and families are engaged in their children's education like never before, the ESC is providing resources and supports to ensure they have access to the necessary tools for success. If you are a school district or school looking for family and community supports, please contact our Family & Community Partnerships liaison.

Please see here if you're looking for 2021 summer student enrichment offerings or here if you are looking for career awareness and options events being held in partnership with Columbus State Community College.

Note: If you're struggling to get your child engaged in virtual learning or with school engagement in general, we urge you to request a meeting (by phone, virtually, or in-person) with a school administrator, counselor, social worker, or teacher. Meetings can typically be organized easily by school counselors and social workers. We find that this often leads to the elimination of multiple barriers and has brought clarification to the students and their families. 

Childcare

Learning Extension Centers | Columbus City Schools is partnering with several community organizations on Learning Extension Centers - safe, adult-supervised, welcoming spaces where students are supported while learning virtually during the day.

College & Career Readiness

Business Advisory Council Parent & Community Awareness Workgroup | Education for today’s high school students looks different and work experiences are important to be ready for careers and college. Families and students can explore options to understand: 1) There are multiple pathways that students can take to employment in high-demand jobs. 2) Real-world experiences in high school are vital for exploring further career and education opportunities. 3) Students can have a variety of experiences that will prepare them for the next steps after high school.
