How To Get Involved In Your Child's High School Education
Please don't think that a high school diploma or the high school staff are going to give your child
The most important thing when supporting your child's high school education is to start getting involved and supporting them early. Unfortunately, a lot of people don't realize that this involvement and support starts at birth. From the time that you start reading, to the time that you start engaging with them in active conversations and being involved in their life in general. High school education is more than just the classes to go to, it's the extracurricular activities, all those types of things. You can specifically get involved with supporting your child high school education by most importantly being in contact with the student's school, the counselors and the vice principals. If you have questions, ask if you are not aware of things. Then, have a goal for your child, if the family with your child has a goal; make sure you stay on track to accomplish that goal. Please don't think that a high school diploma or high school staff will give everything that your child needs. You may have specific desires for your child that you need to communicate with to all staff members, or what we say is, with all stakeholders. If that means you need to communicate with the child's teacher, do that. If that means go making sure that you go to "back to school night," do that. If that's making sure that every teacher, counselor, administrative staff or support staff has your e-mail, they will have access to you both during the daytime whether it's cell phone or business phone. You want to make sure that if there is a problem, staff has easy access to you. Teachers are dealing with many students throughout the day, this is usually the parent that comes in, asks questions, showing they are actively supporting their child's high school education. This way of getting involved will get questions answered quickly and will utilize the available resources.
