Parent involvement is a key element of programming at Connections For Learning. Obviously with the home education programs available, parent involvement is a foundational element in the delivery and success of student programming. The degree and nature of parent involvement is different in our three home education programs; however, there is flexibility within each program for parents to bring their family’s values and strengths to the forefront to support their child’s education.
For families who have a student enrolled in one of our programs that support students with unique learning needs, parent involvement is also critical given the complex nature of the learning needs of their child. Parents are integrally involved in the development of the student’s Individualized Program Plan (IPP) and communication plans are established with each family.
Given that these alternative programs see educational activities delivered alongside parents, our staff members are accustomed to working closely with parents to keep them informed of student progress, instructional strategies, curriculum needs, etc. Parents are encouraged to establish a close line of communication with their child’s teacher.
