Parent Involvement Policy
Carter High School believes positive parental involvement is essential to achieve maximum social, emotional, and academic growth and encourages participation of parents in all aspects of their child’s education.To strengthen the already growing parent involvement at Carter High a plan has been developed collaboratively with the members of our learning community. The following are some of the opportunities parents can use to become engaged in their child’s learning:
