At Washington Christian Academy we understand that one of the keys to partnering is to ensure that we maintain frequent and timely communication with parents. We have many programs in place to ensure that this important communication takes place.
Within the first month, the school hosts a Back-to-School night. Parents are invited to come and hear both from the school administration and from the teachers. For the Middle and Upper schools, parents move from class to class throughout the evening, following their student's schedule. Teachers present their objectives and grading plans for the class and answer questions from parents.
Early in November, we set aside time for parent-teacher conferences. We encourage all parents to participate. Teachers will provide detailed information on your student's work and progress and answer any questions parents may have.
To provide day-to-day communication throughtout the year, the school uses a program called RenWeb. Assignment, grading and attendance information is stored in RenWeb and immediately available to parents. At any time, parents are able to access a detailed grade report for their child. The assignment information also helps parents and students manage school work and homework due dates.
All teachers have school email accounts and typically use them for communication with parents. All teachers' email addresses are available within RenWeb.
