Resources for Families

When schools work together with families to support learning, children are inclined to succeed not just in school, but throughout life. 

The following are just a few suggestions of the many ways you can be involved with your child's education:

  • Contact your child's teacher early in the school year and maintain communication throughout the year.

  • Ensure that your child's school has your up-to-date contact information.

  • Participate in parent/teacher conferences.

  • Ask the teacher what your child is learning and how you can support your student at home.

  • Talk with your child daily about homework, classroom activities, and events.

  • Learn about school policies and expectations so you can help your child

    understand them.
  • Model behaviors and attitudes you expect from your child.

  • Encourage and nurture your child's creativity.

  • Talk with your employer about flex time so you can participate in school

  • Establish a daily family routine.
