|Parental Partnerships||| Print ||
At DAAS, we consider our parents to be powerful partners in the educational process. We clearly understand that academic success is only achieved when we work together as a team for the benefit of the student. To this end, we encourage parents to communicate regularly with your child's teacher. You can do this through arranged visits to the classroom, e-mail messages, notes, or phone calls. You are also encouraged to follow your child's class requirements and accomplishments through Parent Connect, which is available on this website. Here you can review your child's attendance record, completion of academic assignments, and course schedules. Just click the Parent Connect icon and you can get started.
We also provide guidance and assistance to parents through special in-services sponsored by our Parent Advisory Council (PAC). Some topics for the PAC in-services include: Parental Strategies for Addressing Reading and Math, Behavioral Management Techniques, and other in-services that serve as valuable tools for addressing your child's educational challenges and supporting their academic studies.
Along with these in-service experiences, parents are also encouraged to participate in the regularly scheduled PAC meetings. These meetings provide an opportunity for you to share your concerns, interests and to make recommendations for district operations and educational planning.
Parent & Teacher Conferences are held three times throughout the school year for parents and teachers to discuss student progress. A quarterly report card is provided to all parents with a detailed description of the grades the student has earned in their classes as well as his or her general progress. Parent & Teacher Conferences are generally held in the afternoon and early evening to afford some convenience for parent participation. This progress review requires an active partnership and is to be attended by the student and at least one parent/guardian.
Parents are expected to attend both conferences to allow for effective communication between the teacher and parent in regards to the student's progress and quarterly academic goals. It is also an opportunity for the student to discuss his or her own progress and concerns.
Volunteering to assist with activities in your child's school provides parents with a firsthand glimpse of the academy's daily schedule and to observe many of our specialized programs in operation. Volunteering also sends a message to your child that you are very serious about his or her education and that you will be visible and take an active part in seeing to it that they succeed.
