"Research overwhelmingly demonstrates that parent involvement in a student’s learning is positively related to achievement," says principal Mary Rounds at Caddo Magnet High.

"It also shows that the earlier parents are involved in a student’s education process, the more success the child will experience. Successful elementary home-school partnerships require ongoing communication between the school and the home.

In an effort to strengthen this partnership, the district has scheduled mandatory orientation meetings for all parents with students attending Caddo Public Schools for the 2011-2012 school year."

Caddo Parish Magnet High School orientation meetings are scheduled for the following dates:
Thursday, August 4, 2011, at 5:30 p.m. in the Ran Kiper Performing Arts Center (PAC), and the makeup meeting is slated for
Wednesday, August 10, 2011, at 2:00 p.m. in the PAC.

"During these mandatory meetings, staff members will discuss the curriculum, schedules of the day, parent involvement opportunities, discipline, attendance, dress code, school calendar, and other important programs, including JPams Technology System."

Adds Rounds, "Please plan to attend one of these mandatory meetings. Your attendance and support are important to your child’s success in school."
