Parent Involvement: Alice Coachman Elementary School

Staff and administrators at Alice Coachman recognize parents as their child’s “first teacher” and have worked from the school’s 1999 opening to “get parents on board.” Principal Victor feels that the school’s  emphasis on involving parents in their children’s school lives has helped students, and Coachman, succeed. Parents take part in school assemblies and performances and attend school-related workshops. The online “I Care” tool lets parents follow their children’s academic and behavioral progress in real time. Parents remark that the program teaches them how to work one-on-one with their children and create home assignments to complement their school work. Read the transcript of Parent Involvement. Return to the general introduction to Alice Coachman Elementary School
