MMSD Policies and Procedures: 4500
|POLICY||PARENTAL PARTICIPATION IN THE SCHOOLS ||4500|
It is the policy of the BOARD to encourage and facilitate parental involvement in their children's educational experiences. Communication between parents/guardians and teachers and other staff regarding individual students is appropriate and important at all grade levels. Individual schools also have the responsibility to communicate to parents/families relevant information about school policies, expectations, and activities, as well as to ensure reasonable parental access to their child's classroom, to the school, and to its personnel.
The BOARD recognizes that parental and family involvement at school-sponsored activities contributes positively to student achievement. Therefore, the BOARD urges individual schools to facilitate such participation by all families, and specifically to ensure that family members are not prevented from participating in any such activities for financial reasons.
