Parents' Guide to Student Success

Parents' Guides to Student Success

The 4-page guide includes:

  • Key items that children should be learning in English language arts and mathematics in each grade, once the standards are fully implemented.
  • Methods for helping parents build stronger relationships with their child's teacher.
  • Tips for planning for college and career (high school only).
  • Activities that parents can do at home to support their child's learning.

The 2-page guide is a condensed version of the 4-page guide.
