Parent tips from the Utah Education Association
Parent–Teacher Partnerships – Partners, Part I
Communities, parents, and teachers make great partners when it comes to helping children learn.
Here are some ways we can all work together to provide a high quality education for all Utah children:
- Establish school-business partnerships. Schools and businesses can work together to prepare students for further education — and for life as productive members of their communities.
- Employers can grant parents leave to attend school meetings, conferences, or to volunteer in the school.
- Engage in activities to better meet the needs of children and their families. For example, the county health department can schedule regular visits to the school health clinic. Social service workers can meet with school counselors. After-school program providers can operate homework clubs utilizing textbooks and other materials provided by the school.
Creative solutions exist that can lead to educational success for all children. Let’s work together.
