Parents' guide to graduation

How is My Child Doing?

Staying engaged in your child’s education is critical. For many students, having their parents be active members in their education can help keep them on track to graduate.

These are a few ways parents can stay involved in knowing how their child is doing in their classes and help their child receive supports needed to succeed.

Every parent wants to stay informed on how their student is doing in school. For busy families, this is not always easy. This site provides parents information on some research-proven ways to stay on top of student progress: grades and progress reports, state test scores and talking with school staff.

Another very important way for parents to stay up-to-date on student achievement is to talk with their student about school every day.

Ask your student about the things they are learning in class. Ask your students’ opinion on how the math quiz went, and what they are reading in language arts. Check your students’ agenda every day and ask if any homework was assigned. Talking with your student about school will help them succeed.
