The traditional parent-teacher interview is one of the rare opportunities that teachers have to discuss a student’s progress, face to face with a parent or guardian. But because of busy work/life schedules, there is often no guarantee that enough detail and personalized attention can be given to each student in these short interviews. Student success depends upon deeper involvement from families.

Chief among the standards for achieving a high level of success is the level to which parents, guardians, and teachers can connect and communicate with each other.
