Partnership with The Forsyth Promise
The Forsyth Promise facilitates education-focused collaborative, community-wide planning and action. They provide a framework to help all community stakeholders work together toward the goal of improved educational outcomes for Forsyth County’s students — from cradle to career. Their core values are Educational Equity, Inclusive Stakeholder Engagement, and Data-Driven Decision Making.
- Forsyth Promise is currently recruiting mentors/volunteers for the intensive support schools. Mentors and volunteers will be trained jointly by the district and Big Brothers and Big Sisters. This program is called the Great 8 Mentoring program.
