Family Involvement In Seattle Schools

Seattle Schools understand the importance of family involvement in a child's education. Too many families believe that school in general is a time when their child isn't their problem and therefore, spend no extra time or involvement. This, of course, just simply isn't the case, though. Active parental involvement can be one of the most important tools for a child's successful educational career. Leaders in the Seattle Schools know this and want to take advantage of this great tool and opportunity in order to help their students succeed.

How Can I Get Involved to Help Seattle Schools?

As a parent, your involvement will help Seattle Schools and your child tremendously. Here are just few of the different ways you can help your child, listed below:

Good Parenting: Seattle Schools know that parenting is probably the hardest job on the planet, but they want to encourage and foster good parenting skills in parents like you and in turn children like yours can have a proper influence. This includes creating an stimulating environment through out the day that is able to keep your child interested in learning no matter what time of the day it is. Learning isn't just for school days between the hours of 8:00 and 3:00. Learning is a lifetime event that Seattle Schools want to capitalize on in order to make their students as closely live up to their academic and personal potential as good is possible. This includes parents like you being supportive of your child and encouraging him to talk about his feelings and problems as well as seeking your help in school work. It is good to make your expectations for school performance high, but not it is not beneficial to make them unreachable. Perhaps most importantly, encourage your child to pursue educational interests. Take him to the library, museum, art show, or whatever you think will stimulate his mind and get him asking questions and wanting to learn. Also, set a good example and read by yourself every day. This encourages your child to read on his own as well.

Ï Communication: Teachers in the Seattle Schools need to be actively involved in the home lives of their students as well as during a normal school day. It's important for you to establish a good communication connection with the school in order to provide teachers with information, this way they can spot any trouble with your child early before it becomes a major problem. Seattle Schools' leaders encourage parents to call their child's teachers regarding any problems, concerns, or questions as well as to understand that the faculty and staff in Seattle Schools are trained professionals and probably know what they're talking about. Keep an open mind because we can sometimes be blinded by the love of our own children.

Overall, Seattle Schools want your child to have the best education available. Get involved. Ask questions. Encourage your child to do the same. They'll thank you for it later. A good education from Seattle Schools will help shape their future for years to come.

High School Rankings For K 12 Gen Interest
Lists assessing high school rankings for K-12 are hugely popular right now because of the intense scrutiny of American education. These rankings are important because parents make moves to areas, or away form them, based on how schools rate. The schools then get more money per pupil, or less if they are losing students. Using high school rankings for K-12 is different from using them for the lower age groups. To gauge the effectiveness of a high school, these are the things you need to look...

Virginia Schools Focus On The Needs Of Families
Virginia Schools are not alone in meeting the challenges of rising standards and inadequate funding. Efforts to update the state's Standards of Learning (SOL) have been on-going since the late 1990s; long before the 2001 No Child Left Behind (NCLB) act was implemented. What Virginia Schools have discovered is that there is not a one size fits all solution to education reform.

Chicago School Initiatives
Chicago Schools face many barriers in providing equal and effective learning to one of the nation's largest student populations. The prospect of school can be daunting for students and parents.

Denver Schools Worry About Diversity
In June of this year, the United States Supreme Court ruled to restrict schools across the nation, including Denver Schools, from using race to determine attendance. This decision will limit the integration at many schools across the nation. The decision was split with a five justice majority ruling that school programs in Seattle and Louisville violated the Constitution's guarantee of equal protection to ALL students. Educators in Denver Schools fear that the decision may lead schools to stop...

Diversity In Chicago Schools
On the last day of the 2006-2007 Supreme Court, Chief Justice John Roberts announced a decision that will inevitably stir up diversity issues within schools across the nation, and the Chicago Schools. It will most certainly change the way most school systems, including those within the Chicago Schools, run their magnet programs. And it will affect how they decide which students to steer towards, and to accept into, each program. The decision decried racial balancing in schools where race is...
