Salem-Keizer Public Schools has created a new publication to help answer parents’ most commonly asked questions about achievement and instruction as students work to earn a standard four-year diploma.
The Parents’ Guide to Graduation will be mailed home in mid-October.
One Guide has been created specific to each grade, kindergarten through grade 8, and one for all high school grades combined. Each Guide contains a snapshot of learning standards for the grade level, information about grading practices and state tests, and tips for helping students at home. Materials are available in both English and Spanish.
There are also Parents’ Guide websites with additional resources: http://www.skgradguide.com and http://espanol.skgradguide.com. Both websites were designed to be mobile-friendly to serve parents who want to access information from a smartphone or other mobile device.
Parents may find the Guide most useful when reviewing report cards or at parent-teacher conferences. Conferences are coming up in late November.
The handout is named “Parents’ Guide to Graduation” because each grade is a step along the way to the ultimate goal of achieving a high school diploma. Knowing what it takes to stay on track at each grade level will help students reach that goal.
