Parents are the child’s first and foremost teachers. Together with the school, we can purposefully create environments conducive for your child’s holistic growth and development. As a parent, it’s only natural that you’ll want to take an active role in your child’s education. At CIA FIRST International School, we actively encourage parents to engage with their child’s learning.
Goals and areas of partnership
Develop effective ways of helping parents support their child’s education
Dialogue with school leadership and provide solution-oriented feedback on school policies, procedures, and curricula
Create platforms for parents to meet and contribute valuable suggestions and feedback
Bring community resources to the school
Participate in school-wide events, such as Family Day and International Children’s Day
CIA FIRST values parent engagement, which we define as “the active and ongoing process of engaging parents, improving communication, collaboration, and deepening understanding and respect for international cultures and global citizenship toward the common goal of educating and developing the whole child.”
Effective parent engagement is much broader than parent-teacher conferences and/or parent volunteer hours in the school. PaPA is one additional piece of a broad and diverse tapestry of parent engagement.
