Fight for Your Child’s Rights at School: A Free Checklist

You are your child’s most critical (and sometimes only) advocate at school. Without your diligent attention and persistence, he may not get the accommodations and education support he needs to thrive. Use this resource to bolster your efforts.

We all want our children to succeed in school, but what are you doing to ensure that your child is getting the academic support she or he needs to excel?

Start by printing this list of parent advocacy suggestions and checking off the strategies you plan to implement with your child’s teacher.

Ideas include setting up a teacher meeting in the first few weeks of school. Reaching out to the teacher in both good times and bad. Documenting communication with the school. Keeping the conversation solution-centered, rather than focusing on who’s to blame or how your child misbehaved. And so much more.
