Student Progress, Uniforms Discussed
Duval County Superintendent Ed Pratt-Dannals appeared in a live chat on Jacksonville.com on Thursday. Here are some excerpts:
Whatever happened to the school uniform requirements for elementary and middle schools?
What [do] you think are the most important things parents need to know and/or do to make sure their children are successful students?
I'll go through just a few key items. Go to the open house, meet the teacher and get an idea of what the curriculum is. The second one is to keep up with the progress of your child either through school notes, progress reports or online systems the schools are using that give information about their child's progress. Third would be to set up conferences early on when there are signs of trouble. Set up a time and place for homework and ask to see it when it's done.
