Parent Participation in the Academic Program

All students have an Individual Instruction Plan (IIP), which is a student’s educational roadmap for the year. Parents are encouraged to be active participants in the design and implementation of their child’s academic program at Oakland. The plan includes current levels of performance as well as strengths and weaknesses noted in the areas of reading, written language and math. Achievement test data is included and specific goals and objectives are noted for the core academic areas. It is important to note that the objectives are not merely a listing of the curriculum, but are individualized to address the particular needs of each child.

Narrative reports follow up on the progress of students in each area and are sent home quarterly. Formal conferences are held three times a year, but parents are welcome to schedule in-person conferences, call, or e-mail with questions, concerns or suggestions at any time.
