Too often, a home visit from a teacher means one thing to a family: trouble. But with the Parent Teacher Home Visit (PTHV) Program, the goal is to start by building a strong and positive relationship between the family and the school. The visits begin with the teacher asking about the family’s hopes and dreams for their child. By involving the parents and families, we create a better chance of success for students.
Over the past 10 years teachers and families have been getting to know each other through the Parent Teacher Home Visit program. Now, teachers and families are continuing to get to know each other through virtual visits.
Over the course of the last ten years educators participating in the Parent Teacher Home Visit program have completed over 65,000 home visits. During this pandemic our educators dedication to developing and maintaining relationships with families has not waivered. Teachers and families have completed over 2,500 virtual home visits since the start of this year, ensuring that educators, families, and students are academic partners all throughout these difficult times.
