Parents and Families are Key to Success

It takes a team to ensure your student is as successful in school as he or she can be. That team includes the student, the school and you - the parent or guardian.

Studies show that students do better when parents are engaged in and supportive of their education. We encourage you to:

  • Meet your student’s teachers, either at Back-to-School night or by calling or e-mailing.
  • Get to know who is who at the school. The administrators, counselors, teachers, aides and others all play a role in your student’s success.
  • Track your child’s progress online through parent portals; frequently check in verbally with your student’s teachers.
  • If you think your student needs extra services, ask for an evaluation.
  • Set aside a designated time and space to do homework, and ask every night if your student has work to complete.
  • If you have time, volunteer at school and/or join the parent-teacher organization.
  • Be an advocate. Ask questions, both of your student and the school, and voice concerns early with the appropriate person (teacher first, then
  • principal).
  • Demonstrate a positive attitude in your home about education.
  • Monitor screen time.
  • Encourage your student to read for pleasure.
  • Talk with your student about the school day.
