Parental/Guardian Notification of Grades and Behavior

Twice a quarter, each student will receive a list of all grades in progress report form. Each report must be signed by a parent or a guardian and returned the day after it is received. Parents and students may also use InTouch to access grades at any time. If you would like to use this program, I will need your email address.

 

If a student is not performing well academically or behaviorally, his parent/guardian will notified by phone as well. A parent /teacher/counselor conference will be scheduled if necessary.

 

If a parent/guardian has any concerns, he/she may call me at 875-7012. In order for me to return the call as soon as possible, the parent/guardian needs to leave not only the number where he/she can be reached, but also the most convenient time to call. I request that all parents try to leave a number where they can be reached during school hours. If I cannot be reached at school, parents may call me at home (821-0867) or e-mail me at sbozier@dorchester2.k12.sc.us.
