DPS Parent Teacher Home Visit Week

Mar. 7, 2017

Event Date: March 04, 2017


“The parent/teacher connection that starts at a visit shows the child that we are connected. Seeing my son’s face when his teacher came into our house was awesome.”

Be a Part of Parent Teacher Home Visit Week!

What is a home visit?

Home visits are meetings between school staff and families focused on building positive relationships. They are:

  • 20-30 minutes long
  • Voluntary for both staff and families
  • Hosted somewhere outside of school (home, park, library, etc.)
  • Based around the question – what are your hopes and dreams for your child?

Why home visits?

Home visits are a research-based approach correlated with improvements in

  • Student achievement
  • Attendance
  • Behavior

Last year’s highlights

  • 34 schools participated
  • 17 members of the district’s Senior Leadership Team, including Acting Superintendent Susana Cordova, joined staff on visits
  • In all, staff visited 1,079 students and families in just one week!
