  • Home/School Partnership
    Northside High School
    Cecilia Moraga- Fountain
  • Northside High School will equip every student with the skills to be globally competitive and prepared for life in the 21st century
    In order to help us accomplish this, we need to form a partnership with parents
  • Successful Partnership Organization
  • Parental Involvement in High School? Yes!
    Substantial evidence exists showing that parent involvement benefits students at every grade level by:
    Raising their academic achievement.
    Increased motivation for learning,
    Improved behavior
    Improves attendance
    a more positive attitude about homework and school in general.
    Again, this works for every grade level!
  • Research shows that with parental involvement :
    It empowers you knowing you have parental support
    Teachers learn more about students’ needs
    You can apply this information towards better meeting those needs
    Parents who are involved tend to have a more positive view of teachers
    This results in improved teacher morale.
    Teachers benefit as well
  • The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction states:
    Within your school and district, teachers should “provide leadership in working with parents and strengthening the home-school partnership
    You are the leader of your classroom: It is ultimately your job to ensure parental involvement
    NC Master Teacher Competencies
  • Strategies for parental involvement
    Encourage students to bring parents to open house by offering incentives i.e. Cookies , ice cream, H.W. pass
    Contact parents unable to attend via email to introduce yourself
    Be flexible with setting up parent conferences via phone/in person. Not all parents can take off from work @ 2:00 pm
    Make “good news” phone calls Or send “good news” letters home
    Encourage them to access school website to stay informed
    Create assignments where parent input is needed
    Introduce yourself when you see parents out in town. Make positive comments about their child
    Handout/Mail the partnership brochure (following slides show a sample of brochure contents)
  • Education is a partnership between home and school. We welcome you to visit our school and meet the staff on Parent Night. In order for this partnership to be effective, we need to be able to communicate
    If you cannot come to parent night, please feel to call, write a note, or e-mail us if you have concerns or questions about your child’s education
    Progress reports go home every 3 weeks, to ensure you are aware of your child’s progress.
    We are always available to schedule a conference to discuss any issue or concern you have regarding your child.
  • We have high expectations for the students in our school. We expect:
    Students to achieve academically to their fullest potential
    Students to contribute in a positive manner to our school environment
    Success because “failure is not an option”
    Teacher Expectations:
  • We also have high expectations of our parents. We expect:
    Parents to be involved in any way possible
    Parental support in both academic and behavior concerns
    Form a collaborative relationship with us
    Support us so that we can be strong shoulders for your child to stand on
    Give us input about your child so that we can get to know them better
    Come to Parent Night and meet staff
    Teacher expectations of parents
  •   As a parent of a student at our school, you have the right to expect:
    To be valued as an important part of your child’s education
    Freedom to express concerns about your child’s progress
    Emails & phone calls to be returned in at least 48 hours
    Conference meeting with all of your child’s teachers
    Respect from all of our faculty
    Your child’s best interest in our hearts always
    Parent Expectations
  • Remember: Lack of involvement doesn’t mean they don’t care
    Your students will know that you value them and their education
    Do whatever it takes to get 1 more MONARCH across the stage
    No response from parent?
