Sandburg's Home - School Agreement: The Principal's Role

January 13, 2022

This is a good time of year to revisit the Home/School Agreement that each of us signed in the fall of this school year.  The Home/School Agreement is a promise in good faith that outlines each of our roles in educating the children of Sandburg School.  Please take a look at the principal’s role and the responsibilities that the agreement outlines for me.  Am I meeting your needs as the building principal?  I’m always interested in your feedback.

As the principal of Sandburg School, I will:

~ Maintain a welcoming, positive and safe environment for all school community members.

~ Maintain high academic expectations that are aligned with Illinois Learning Standards.

~ Provide programs that promote the social, emotional, and academic growth of all students.

~ Maintain high standards for student behavior as outlined in The Student Success Guide.

~ Reinforce the partnership between the parents, students, staff and community.

~ Maintain open communication with families through a variety of means and encourage input and feedback from all members of the school community.

~ Encourage and provide on site opportunities for family engagement through family nights, parent opportunities, and parent/child workshops.

Again, I’m always interested in your feedback.  If you feel that there is something more that I can be doing to create an optimum learning environment for all children, I’d be interested in hearing from you.  In the next issue of Sandburg Sayings, we’ll revisit the teacher’s role in your child’s education.
