Communication of student progress to both the student and their parents is essential in ensuring academic success. One of the ways that this can be accomplished is through the use of regular Mark book printouts which are supplied to the student at various dates throughout the semester. Teachers may request that the printouts be returned, signed by a parent, so that the teacher is sure that parents have received, and are aware of their child’s academic progress.
Teachers will initiate contact with parents for a variety of academic/behavioural reasons. Parents should feel free to initiate contact the teacher either via phone or email. The sign out in front of the school is also used to communicate important dates throughout the semester. Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences, also provide parents with an opportunity to obtain feedback on their child’s performance. In summary, parents are strongly encouraged to be involved in their child’s education through contact with the school at any point in the semester.
