HOME VISIT PROGRAM

HOME VISIT PROGRAM

The purpose of home visits is simple: teachers and parents become equal partners to increase the academic achievement of students. They form a relationship through which they can share dreams, expectations, and tools regarding the child’s academic success. Teachers learn more about their students, involve parents more in their child’s education, and bridge cultural gaps that may exist.
Home visits communicate in a clear and unambiguous way that their child’s school cares enough to initiate personal contact with the goal of establishing a relationship that nurtures a child’s academic success.
The Home Visit Program utilizes a schedule and structure that has been developed and proven to break down barriers that often exist between schools and the community, and to provide opportunities for the sharing of goals and expectations. From the first visit focusing on relationship building, the program solidifies and strengthens the relationship with families. It helps parents/guardians understand where their child is academically and provides tools to increase the parents’ capacity to assist their child in specific areas as needed.
