BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- Bronxville School District officials invite feedback from parents with questions about school procedure or classroom practice in its efforts to sustain a positive, trusting relationship between school and home, said a school press release.
Parents should feel free to share their concerns directly with the teacher, counselor, or principal.
Parents also have the opportunity to register compliments or concerns in connection with employment decisions; parents may comment on a probationary teacher, administrator, or tenure candidate.
Parents or other community members may share their perceptions through a signed letter addressed to the Principal, in the case of faculty, or to the Superintendent, in the case of administrators.
Such letters will be acknowledged in writing by the supervisor, and shared with the individual teacher or administrator, and with the Superintendent and the Board of Education.
Letters pertaining to tenure recommendations should be received no later than March 1 of the teacher’s or administrator’s tenure year.
Input even earlier in the tenure process, including years prior to the tenure year, allows more time for professional growth or recognition.
It is important to note that parental feedback is only one aspect of an assessment of staff performance that encompasses preparation and planning, classroom management, instruction, and professional responsibilities.
