Your rights as a parent

As parents, you have a right to know how your child is progressing and to expect early identification of any learning problems.

If you have any questions about your child’s education, don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher. You have the right to know:

  • what is being taught and how it is taught

  • what discipline methods are used in a class

  • what will be evaluated and how

  • what the teachers’ expectations are for your child, for academic achievement, and behaviour

  • how the teacher will communicate with you and for what reasons you will be contacted

  • the best methods to convey any concerns you have to the teacher or school

You also have the right to:

  • meet with the teacher or school personnel within a reasonable time after making a request

  • visit the classroom by appointment

  • bring forward concerns or complaints and have them dealt with appropriately

  • be kept informed of your child’s progress and any problems which develop
