Academics, Curriculum, and Instruction

Who do I contact if I have a concern regarding my child’s grades?

Your child’s teacher is the first point of contact to discuss grades, attendance, classroom performance, and related issues. Teachers can be reached by phone, email, or via the Parent Connect portal. Additionally, teachers are available for one-on-one sessions during designated Parent-Teacher Conference periods. Please contact your school’s office to obtain contact information or to sign up for Parent Connect.

 Who do I contact if I want to dispute my child’s grades on the report card?

The teacher is the most knowledgeable about the academic performance of your child. If you are unable to resolve the grade issue with the teacher, please request a review of the grades by scheduling an appointment with your principal and/or his administrative designee.
