Does the school keep all families informed about important issues and events and make it easy for families to communicate with teachers?
Do families know and understand how well their children are doing in school and how well the entire school is progressing?
Are families active participants in their children’s learning at home and at school?
Are parents prepared to monitor their students’ progress and guide them toward their goals through high school graduation, postsecondary education, and a career?
