 Woodrow Wilson Middle School’s Parent Involvement Policy

Reviewed 10/31/16 

Woodrow Wilson Middle School is committed to the belief that all children can learn and acknowledges that parents share in the success of their children. We believe that working together, as a team, is the key to our success.

 

Parents, teachers, and administrators are encouraged to keep the lines of communication open between the home and school. We strongly believe that a child’s education is a shared responsibility between the home and the school. Parents are encouraged to call, email, or write notes to teachers if there are any questions or concerns throughout the school year. Interpreters are available, upon request, to meet with you and your child’s teacher(s).

 

We view parents as important decision makers in the academic lives of their children. Middle school students are at a particularly unique stage in their development and communication between the home and school is crucial.

 

To this end, Woodrow Wilson MS parents, staff, and students meet jointly to develop our School Wide Parent Involvement Policy and Compact in the spring of each school year. Relevant workshops, programs, and activities will be offered to our parents throughout the school year. We encourage all of our parents to take part in what our school has to offer. Parents are equal partners and we value their input.

 

Although Woodrow Wilson set two days aside in November for conferences, parents are encouraged to schedule meetings throughout the year if the need arises. If parents would like to schedule a conference with their child’s teacher(s), they may contact the office directly and arrangements will be made.

 

If any parent would to be involved in creating next year’s parent involvement documents, he/she may contact our Title I School Wide Support teachers, Mr. Kuhar or Mrs. Baker. (874-6600)

 

Title I regulations state that we must notify parents of the existence of a parent resource center if one exists. It is located in the office of our school. If parents have a special request or need information on a specific topic, please contact one of our Title I School Wide Support teachers or our guidance counselor, Mr. Peck. (874-6600)

This Parent Involvement Policy is reviewed and updated in the spring of each school year. All parents are invited to attend the “work session” to update the policy and learning compact.
