The Importance of Parent/Teacher Collaboration

Parents and teachers share the same goals for children and students; they want each individual to do their best. This will happen when parents and teachers work together. This can happen in a number of ways.

  • Keeping lines of communication open between parents and teachers
  • Parents help by setting aside time for schoolwork at home
  • Teachers can send newsletters, create blogs, make phone calls and send report cards
  • Parents can attend parent/teacher conferences to make sure that parents, teachers and students are all on the same page
  • Parents can volunteer in the classroom or building
  • Parents can help the teacher by letting them know about things happening at home
  • Teachers and parents can work as a team to provide the best for students
