Welcome to OCESP!

  • Welcome to the Office of Community Engagement & Strategic Partnerships

    Our team is dedicated to creating and supporting partnerships among schools, families, and the Athens-Clarke County community. 

    As a central resource for family engagement, our staff strives to engage with our essential partners (parents/guardians, the ACC community) to help our students achieve academic goals. We are responsible for communicating the goals, objectives, and priorities of the Clarke County School District and strive to provide our families and community with accurate and timely information. 

    When our community partners with CCSD, we can achieve goals that benefit our most important asset: OUR STUDENTS. Thank you for your interest in making a difference for the Clarke County School District students through community partnership!
