How Families Can Support Their Child’s Learning
Pullman Public Schools encourages families to be involved in their child’s education. Research shows that academic achievement improves significantly when parents are involved in school and at home. Families are invited to be involved in the following ways:
- Read every day with your child
- Attend parent-teacher conferences
- Assist your child with schoolwork and learning activities at home
- Participate in school and district parent events
- Volunteer in your child’s classroom or during school events
- Engage your child in conversation about what they are learning
- Visit your local library to obtain a library card and check out books for reading together
- Communicate with your child’s teacher and school staff when you have questions or concerns
If you have any questions about Title I or LAP, contact the Pullman Public Schools Instructional Programs office at (509) 332-3144 or InstructionalPrograms@psd267.org.
