Pensacola Beach Elementary School offers a wide range of communication with parents. Graded papers and citizenship reports are sent home on a weekly basis. Mid–term progress reports go home during the middle of each nine week grading period and report cards are sent home at the end of the grading period. Teachers send home class newsletters and parent letters to inform them of units of study and special events in which parent participation is needed. The PTA provides planners to the students. Teachers and parents communicate through the planners on a daily basis when necessary.
In addition, the PTA sends home monthly newsletters to keep parents up–to–date on all school activities. Teachers schedule conferences with parents to keep them abreast of their children’s progress and their educational needs.
Each member of the staff has an email account and parents can communicate with their child’s teacher this way. Through all of these modes of communication we seek to help parents understand that they can come to school, for a visit, or for assistance from their teacher, and/or the principal, on a formal as well as informal basis.
The principal publishes his email address and cell phone number each month in the PTA newsletter. Minutes from all Board of Directors, Building Foundation, and PTA meetings are published online as well.
The School Public Accountability Report (SPAR) contains several types of data (indicators) designed to inform parents and the general public about the progress of Florida’s public schools. This report meets public reporting requirements and provides certain additional information of interest on the status of Florida’s schools.
