Specialist teachers work closely with the team to coordinate work and address student concerns. Parents receive grade reports four times a year, and many teachers also provide weekly feedback through student planners. Parents may access student grades on the Parent Portal, which is just one more way we increase communication between home and school. Parent involvement is a priority.
