Classroom Observation to Parents

 

  • You are very welcome to come visit your child's classroom. The following are some guidelines that may be helpful:
  • Please make prior arrangements with the teacher.
  • You will be announced before going into the classrooms so that the teacher can open the locked door for you.
  • You must wear a visitor's pass at all times.
  • You may feel free to stay 20-30 minutes to observe.
  • You will be asked to sit in the back of the room to observe the teacher or your child. This cuts down on distractions in the learning/teaching process.
  • If you want to help in your child's classroom you will need to set this up with the teacher in advance.
  • This is not a time for conferencing. The law is that students must have an exact number of instructional minutes each day which does not include conferencing when students are present. Please call for an appointment ahead of time to make sure the teacher is available to conference before or after school if a conference is necessary.
  • An escort may accompany you during the observation.
