Parent & Community Resources

  • Direction for HelpMany in our community have asked how they can help our students, staff and families. Fulton County Schools has created this web page where resources are listed, such as food banks and distribution programs, online tutoring, and internet providers offering free or low-cost connectivity. This is a place to connect those in need with those who can help.

    We are continuing to add more resources as they become available, so check back often. Please note that many of these are agencies or companies we already have established relationships with and they have affirmed having altruistic intentions in this health crisis. However, Fulton County Schools will not be held liable for any claims or promises made by these organizations.
