Meyer Elementary School
Parent and Family Engagement Policy
Hondo ISD recognizes parents as partners in providing all children with a quality education. We respect the unique knowledge and experience of parents knowing that they are the first and most important teachers in their children’s lives.
To ensure that parents are actively involved in their children’s education, it is the policy of Meyer Elementary School:
To create a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere for parents.
To convene an annual meeting to acquaint parents with the campus, their children’s teachers, instruction and programs including, but not limited to, TEKS Resource System (TCMPC), Fundations, IStation, Diagnostic Reading Assessment (DRA) and OLSAT assessments.
To serve as a partner with parents and families to improve student attendance.
To provide multiple methods to communicate important information to parents keeping them informed of programs, curriculum, and academic assessments used to measure student progress and the state’s academic content and achievement standards. All information oral or written related to school parent programs will be provided in a format and language that the parents can understand.
To provide parents with opportunities to volunteer at their child’s campus following the volunteer guidelines which include a criminal history check for all volunteers.
To provide ongoing opportunities for parents to be involved at various levels in planning and decision making and also provide timely repeated opportunities for parents to provide feedback to the school.
To serve as a referral resource for parents to enable them to locate the services they need for a safe and healthy family.
