    Parents as Equal Partners in the Education of Their Children, a resolution adopted by the Board of Education in December 2010, embraces family strengths and assets as essential to the academic success of students, and recognizes parents as the first and most important lifelong teachers of their children. To that end, families and schools accept responsibility for student success and commit to a partnership that:
     
      •  Maintains high expectations for student achievement
      •  Ensures all children are college and career ready
      •  Promotes productive conversation and collaboration
      •  Reflects mutual respect and support for each other
     
    Parents Have the Right to:
      • A free, quality education that honors their child’s learning and 
         achievement
      • An education that prepares their child for college and 21st century 
         careers
      • A welcoming environment that values family assets and contributions 
         to learning
      • Know the school’s expectations, educational programs, policies and 
         procedures
      • Translation services in order to communicate effectively with 
         school staff
      •  Their school’s Report Card to assess the quality of their child’s school
      •  Information about their child’s progress and performance, 
         intervention strategies and learning supports
      •  Visit their child’s classroom and develop partnerships with teachers 
          and staff
      •  Learning opportunities so they can support education at home and at 
          school
      •  File a formal complaint when necessary, without fear of reprisal
     
    Parents Have the Responsibility to:
      •  Promote literacy, high achievement, and a love of learning at home
      •  Ensure their child attends school every day, on time, and is ready to 
          learn
      •  Monitor and guide their child’s academic progress to ensure success
      •  Seek tutoring and other learning supports for their child when needed
      •  Explore all campus options and school choices available to their child
      •  Conference with teachers and other school staff about their child’s 
          education
      •  Participate in school meetings and activities to be informed about 
          the school
      •  Express their level of satisfaction through the annual School 
          Experience Survey
      •  Provide pertinent information about their child as requested by the 
          school
