IMSA-North organizes home visits. Teachers conduct home visits with parents to enhance parent education and build stronger relationships between students, parents and teachers.
Each year a target group will be selected and visited by the school staff. The purpose of the home visit will be to demonstrate the school’s commitment to the parents and their children. A visit packet will be given to the parent being visited that includes information and updates about the school, articles for parents, and a small, symbolic gift for the family.
Schools within the Concepts network report that home visits are one of the most effective ways of building a stronger relationship with students and their families. The purpose of home visits and the procedure will be communicated to parents before home visits begin, as they still have the right to refuse a visit.
