It is District policy that teachers and administrators should facilitate the active involvement of parents in the education of their children. Teachers and administrators shall communicate with the parents of children with regard to whom the teachers and administrators have responsibility by:
- maintaining a means of answering telephone calls or receiving visits from parents during the school day at times mutually agreed upon by parents and school personnel
- conducting parent-teacher-student conferences at regular intervals and conducting additional conferences when requested to the extent permitted by available time within the school day and by other responsibilities
- informing parents of resources in the community, including groups and organizations that may provide instruction and training to parents to help improve their children’s academic success and support their academic efforts
- encouraging attendance by parents at school events in which parent participation is appropriate.
