The West Hartford Board of Education recognizes that a child's education is a responsibility shared by the school and family during the entire period the child spends in school. To support the goal of the school district to educate all students effectively, schools and parents must work as knowledgeable partners. The Board believes that parents are most knowledgeable when they have regular communication with teachers. Schools will take the lead in developing and sustaining effective partnerships.
Therefore, it is the policy of the Board of Education to encourage parent-teacher communication. The Superintendent, or his/her designee, shall be responsible for developing procedures in furtherance of this policy. Procedures will include an annual report to the Board of Education.
