• Parental Involvement

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:

    Parents will be provided a description of the curriculum and ways that their child is assessed to measure his/her academic progress. Parents can also visit the Parent Portal to view student’s grades. School Fusion can also be accessed to get specific information on classes.

    Individual parent meeting between teachers and parents will also be held when requested by parents or teachers.

    Parents will be involved in the decision making for the school be serving on the *new* PTSO, the School Wide School Team, SIP committee and our District Advisory Council.

    Parents will receive progress reports every 3 weeks.

    Parents who are able are encouraged to keep current with each class’s activities through the *new* ParentPortal. Those who do not have computers are encouraged to go to neighborhood libraries to use their computers.
