Home Visits build relationships, skills, and engagement for families, educators, and students from pre-K to 12th grade. It’s one of the traditions of RCSA that every school year we try to visit our parents.
The intent is to build positive relationships with families and to partner together to support your student(s) educational success. Parents and teachers come together, in a unique setting at your home or other locations of your choice, to get to know one another and talk about your student’s academic future. Your student is also part of this visit.
Time is taken to share your Hopes & Dreams for your student, academic expectations, and school resources. This is not a parent/teacher conference. It is meant to “get to know each other” and to build a viable relationship with each other for the academic benefit of your student.
Studies show that home visit has increased student academic achievement and improved parent engagement in schools. It helps bring teachers and families closer and create opportunities for better communications between home and school. It also helps create feeling of trust, mutual respect, empowerment, and accountability by parents, students and staff.
You may be contacted by your student’s teachers to receive a home visit this year. This is NOT a meeting to tell you what to do as a parent or to talk about your parenting. This is a time to get to know you and your student away from school. This is also a time for you to get to know your student’s teacher.
We are excited about this program and look forward to meeting with you and your student!
It is not mandatory, but it is recommended.
