The Main Icons Used by Parents/Guardians

     

The Student Learning Plan (SLP) is an oultine of the courses, activities, goals, and resources used by each student throughout the course of the year.  Teachers collaborate closely with parents/guardians before it is written. When it is complete, it is important to review the SLP to see if there are any other pieces of info to add or adjust. When the SLP is complete, parents/guardians sign off on it using the SLP Parent/Guaridan Sign-Off icon link.

 

Additional Resources – This icon is where information related to the curriculum budget is tracked. Please check the curriculum budget before making purchases with the Purchase Order number to ensure there are enough funds for the purchase.

The Report Card links directly to each student's report card. If there are any difficulties viewing it, please contact the Support Teacher and they can help. 

The Self-Assessment Survey is completed annually for each student and can be done in combination with the support teacher, student, and parent/guardian. Typically, Support Teachers share information related to this and guide parents through the process.
