VII. Communications

A. Report Cards

Report cards inform you of your child’s progress four times each year.  The format is set by the Mid America Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.  The teacher will evaluate the progress of each child through observation, informal and formal testing, and classroom performance.  The progress report addresses three basic areas: academic skills; personal and social growth; and work and study skills.

B. Parent/Teacher Conferences

Scheduled Parent Teacher Conferences are to be held, once after the first grading period and again after the second grading period. The purpose of these conferences is to review the student’s progress. It is also an excellent time for the free exchange of ideas between parent, teacher and student regarding the student’s education. A PARENT OR Teacher may wish additional conferences during the year. These conferences are to be scheduled at a time that is mutually agreeable to the parent and Teacher.                       

C. Home and School Association

Cooperation and informal activities between parents/guardians, students and faculty are promoted through the Home and School Association.  Parents/guardians are encouraged to become involved.
 
D.  Parent-Teacher Relation/Grievance Policy

On occasion, problems can arise between parents and teachers.  The following conciliation procedure based on Matthew 18 and I Corinthians 6 will be used for resolving these problems:
  • Step One: The parent is to first speak to the teacher in an attempt to resolve the problem. This is to be done by appointment only.
  • Step Two: If the problem is not resolved between parent and teacher, the parent then asks the principal to help resolve the problem. This meeting is to be set up by the principal and by appointment only.
  • Step Three: If the problem is not resolved, the parent contacts the principal and requests a meeting with the school board chair. Once again, this is done by appointment only and with all parties present.
  • Step Four: If the problem is not resolved, the parent will contact the principal and request a meeting with the school board at which time the Conference Superintendent of Education will be invited to attend. The parent must provide documentation to the board chair previous to the meeting that clearly states the grievance to be discussed. Once again, this is done by appointment only and with all parties present.Communications.
