Parents and Teachers

At Pride We believe that nothing is more important to your child’s education at school than having dedicated, responsive, and well-prepared teachers. Our teachers meet the “highly qualified” standard, as required for Title I funding. We are we are happy to share information about our teachers qualifications with parents, as explained in our:

  • Title I, Right to know letter.

At Pride, we encourage contact between parents and their student’s teachers through:

  • Parent-teacher conferences.
  • Frequent reports on student progress including Report Card Nights and Progress Reports.
  • Calls home to parents.

Parents may contact teachers directly via telephone, voicemail, or email. Parents are also encouraged to contact the school to make appointments for face-to-face meetings or telephone conferences.
