Tip #352


Back to School Collaboration tip from Edutopia (www.edutopia.org):

Call Home: Yes, having a blog is great, and you’re ahead of the curve if you use Edmodo, Facebook, Schoology or any other of a number of platforms built to help educators and families connect. But as busy as you — and the parents of your students — are, the more personal the initial communication, the better. If you can make five phone calls each day before heading home, you should be able to reach out with a positive message to each parent by the end of the first month of school. An alternative is hand-written postcards, but phone calls — or better yet, face-to-face meetings — are ideal.
