FOUR WAYS FAMILIES HELP STUDENTS LEARN
Communicate High Expectations One-way families increase learning is by communicating high expectations. Ask, “Is this paper your best writing?” Teachers help families by sharing information about current learning goals.
Monitor Your Student's Expectation Performance Families support success by regularly checking grades in Parent Portal and contacting teachers as needed. Teachers support families by consistently entering grades in Parent Portal and being available to families.
Support Learning at Home When families support and reinforce learning at home, children do better in school. Asking specific questions is one way to do this. For example, “Did you take an AR test today?” Teachers help families support learning at home with ongoing communication.
Advocate For Your Child Advocate by being involved in school functions by attending meetings, answering surveys, and keeping open communication with teachers and school leadership.
