Alief Learning Center
Family Engagement Policy
A representative group of persons, including families, principals, and other staff, joined together to develop this Family Engagement Policy for Alief learning Center.
Regular communication with families will occur in order to build consistent and effective communication between the home and school. Regular communication will include:
- Family and Student Handbook
- Special event/reminder notices
- Family-Teacher conferences
- Alief Learning Center website
- Report cards
- Family nights
- Phone calls to families regarding absences
Families will be invited early in the school year to meet the staff and attend various events, as well as be presented with other school related resources and other vital information related to their student’s success. Through this and other meetings, they will also understand how student progress is measured and they will receive feedback about their child’s progress.
Counselor-led family nights will be held throughout the school year to inform parents about information regarding their children and to provide resources for families. These are opportunities to help families develop strategies to use at home to support their children’s academic efforts and social development.
Some of the 2019-2020 planned activities are:
- Parenting classes
- Community resource presentations
- Academic strategies classes
- Community Service Events
- “Did You Know” Counselor-led Family Nights.
- Thanksgiving Drive Give-away
Families will be encouraged to attend meetings and events.
Alief Learning Center staff will work in collaboration with parents to address areas in need of improvement.
