News from Barksdale Elementary

Rockdale County Public Schools’ Superintendent has closed the buildings to all staff and visitors until Tuesday, January 19th.  This was done as an abundance of caution during this pandemic time.  Parents experiencing issues with devices will need to call the school at 770-483-9514 and leave a voicemail.  Someone from the school will get back in touch with the parent.

Annual Title I Parent and Family Engagement Survey

Our school is a Title I school, and as the parent/guardian and family member of a child attending a Title I school, you are an important part of the Title I team. Your input is vital in the planning and implementation of the Parent & Family Engagement Program and activities in our school. The focus of all Title I programs is to help eligible students meet the same high academic achievement standards expected of all children, regardless of their socioeconomic status and background. The following survey is confidential and will be used to assist us with future planning for parent & family engagement activities and events. We appreciate your feedback and thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.

Virtual Mentors

In just 30 minutes per week, you can change someone’s life.

YOU have the Power of Oneto make a difference in a student’s life.

Be a virtual mentor and make a positive difference in the life of a student. If you are a caring adult who has at least 30 minutes a week to spend with a student, you have the necessary skills for the job. As a virtual mentor, your role will be to:

• Meet with your student mentee virtually once a week for at least 30 minutes throughout the school year. *

• Offer guidance and support.

• Engage in conversation with your mentee.

• Assist with homework or classwork.

• Discuss goals and career options.

• Encourage your mentee’s academic, emotional, and social development.


* RCPS understands that business obligations may from time-to-time prevent you from keeping an appointment with your mentee. In the event of a conflict, please contact Deborah Neason, so your mentee can be informed and the meeting rescheduled. Your mentee considers your presence the most important part of the Mentoring program.

It is easy to become a virtual mentor . . .

Visit the Rockdale County Public Schools website at and click on “Community” to navigate to the Mentoring page.

Complete the online Mentor Application.

Participate in a background check. (There is no cost to you for this service.) Once your completed application is processed by RCPS Student Support Services, you will be contacted regarding a background check. All mentors must complete a

background check before being assigned a student.

Await your assignment. You will be assigned to a student within four weeks of an approved background check.

Attend a brief virtual orientation via Microsoft Teams.
