For Your Information
PARENT, FAMILY, AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT POLICY – The Board of Education of the Howard County Public School System believes that the education of children is a responsibility shared by parents, families, the school system, and the community. The Board recognizes the parent as the child’s first and lifelong teacher and that it is essential to involve parents in educational decisions as caring advocates for their children. The Board encourages collaboration with parents and the community as participants in school governance and as active partners in forwarding the school system’s goals and philosophy.  To learn more, read the entire policy at http://www.hcpss.org/board/policies/10000.pdf

NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND ACT – The No Child Left Behind Act contains several provisions that promote parent/school partnership.  One such provision gives parents the right to ask for and receive information about the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teacher.  If you would like to request the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher or paraprofessional, please submit a written request to your child’s principal.  Your child’s principal will provide the information to you within 30 business days of the date of your request.
