Ask if your child is on grade level

Even if your school doesn’t have spring conferences, reach out to your child’s teacher. Check out this simple tool to help get the most out of your end-of-year conversation.

Protip:

Teachers say the #1 way to know how your child is progressing is to be in regular contact with the teacher (not relying on report card grades).

Be in the know about your child’s learning​

Questions to Ask Your Child’s Teacher About Reading and Math, and how to help at home.

One in five kids in the U.S. has a learning and thinking difference. 

Protip:

You don't have to be a math or reading expert to advocate for your child. Help them thrive by knowing what and how they're learning in school.
