March 15 Memo

Communication

It is important to consider that at the middle school level, there generally tends to be less communication between parents and students than seen in elementary schools.  Bearing this in mind certain groups of students (i.e. ESL) require communication between parents and students, as studies have shown a positive correlation between parent and teacher involvement and student success.  

From preliminary data, teachers communicate with parents 1-2 times per week/biweekly. The remaining data to be collected will determine if parents believe this is sufficient.

Reflection:  I will use tips from classmates to expedite the responses I receive.  I will create more in depth questions to solicit more data from teachers.  

Goals:  Within the next week, I will receive all surveys from students and teachers and will have collected academic and behavioral data.
