Parent Involvement Policy
This policy describes how our school will partner with parents to support student academic achievement.
- Learning Compact. Barbara Jordan Early College Prep (BJECP) will work with parents to develop a learning compact that outlines how parents, the school, and students will share the responsibility for student academic achievement.
- BJECP Responsibilities:
- Curriculum. At back-to-school night and during parent-teacher conferences, BJECP will provide all parents a description and explanation of the curriculum in use at the school, the forms of academic assessment used to measure student progress, and the proficiency levels students are expected to meet.
- Communication. BJECP will:
- Conduct at least two parent-teacher conferences each year;
- Provide frequent reports to parents on their children’s progress. This may include: progress reports, report cards, telephone calls, notes, and newsletters; and
- Provide parents reasonable access to staff, opportunities to volunteer and participate in their child’s class, and observation of classroom activities.
- Parent Education.
- Coffee Chats. The Principal will provide monthly information sessions to parents covering a wide-range of academic and social-emotional topics.
