Working together to support students

Parents, principals, teachers and support staff working together create a strong team for a student’s education.

Sometimes, however, things don’t work as smoothly as we would like and parents find that they are concerned about something at school. This may be related to the education their child is receiving, discipline at the school or health and safety issues.

When that happens, parents can use a step-by-step approach to find a resolution.
