Make Positive Contact with Parents
It is important to communicate with parents throughout the year. Making positive contact with parents keeps them aware of your desire to partner with them in their child’s education. Three tips for “Turning Parents into Partners” include:
- Call Monthly – Pick a few parents to call each month with a positive message.
- Start With the Good – Always start with something positive, so parents do not feel the conversation is one-sided.
- Invite Them In – Welcome parents to be a part of their child’s education through parent conferences, open houses, etc.
