Family Engagement Center Information
Our dedicated Parent Engagement and Educational Partnership with Schools (PEEPS) team works daily to bring families, educators, and community partners together to support academic success and the healthy development of all students. We do this by building relationships and identifying opportunities to connect and inspire families as partners.
In Laramie County School District 1, All Are Welcome
Every effort is made to create an inclusive environment that welcomes people from every race, gender, religion, ethnicity, socioeconomic, status, ability level, ability status, sexual orientation, and immigration status. LCSD1 families speak 29 different languages.
To further our commitment to equity, LCSD1 opened a Community Welcome Center Fall 2019. This Center was created to provide a comfortable and accessible space for families to engage with district staff and to receive services in support of themselves and their children.
What We Do
We are committed to supporting our families throughout their journey in LCSD1. From the time of new student registration through graduation, the PEEPS team is here to help you navigate a successful school experience. Our team can help with the following:
· Completing school forms and applications (including the Free and Reduced Application)
· Connecting family to resources. Families and community members are invited to the center to learn about what is available at LCSD1 and throughout Laramie County. From after-school activities to housing and food pantries, we will connect families with the resources they need!
· Family classes and workshops. Throughout the school year, PEEPS team coordinates several classes and workshops open to all LCSD1 families. Classes may be offered in neighborhood schools or at the Center.
Fall, winter and spring sessions run approximately six weeks and are offered at no cost to families. Childcare and meals are offered for some sessions.
Additionally, PEEPS offer a variety of presentations by community organizations on specific topics.
