Parent-school relationships have always been a vital part of student success, but during the COVID pandemic, when schools moved to remote instruction, communication between parents and educators became more frequent -- and more important -- than ever.
As schools and families returned to a more traditional schedule, many schools continued to build upon this momentum in parent engagement to establish long-term strategies to increase meaningful, two-way communication with students’ families.
At SchoolStatus, we work with hundreds of districts every year to help them build successful communication practices that engage families and support student learning.
Based on current work happening in districts, here are five strategic tips to help schools keep in closer contact with parents.
We’ve seen that when parents and teachers work together as partners in a student’s success, the impact on student progress can be significant. Communication is at the heart of that partnership. As we all work together to help students recover from the impact of COVID disruptions, it is important to engage families in that effort in as many ways as possible.
