Parents Right to Know Letter
Each year districts and schools are required to provide information to parents as well as opportunities for them to be involved in the educational decisions that affect their children. Parents have the right to inquire about the professional qualifications of their child’s teacher and paraprofessionals that work with the child. This information is explained to parents in the Right to Know letter at the link below. Distribution of this letter is a requirement under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act detailed under section 1111(h)(6)(A).

We look forward to sharing our school’s successes with you and working together to make our school better every day. In particular, we are proud that at Pathways the Report Card to the Public shows us doing well on our graduation rates by moving from 61.97% during 2018-19 to 71.21% during the 2019-20 school year.
We hope you will closely follow your student’s academic progress and work with his or her teacher(s) to help ensure academic success. Working together as a team, we can improve not only how well our students are performing individually, but how our school and district are performing as a whole. There is nothing more important to administrators and teachers at Pathways than ensuring that students are ready for the next step in their academic career. We look forward to partnering with you.

Parent Engagement Policy
Valley Pathways School recognizes that some students may need the extra assistance available through the Title I program to reach the state’s high academic standards. Valley Pathways School intends to include parents in all aspects of the school’s Title I program. The goal is a school-home partnership that will help all students to succeed and shall be accomplished with the following Parent Engagement Policy.
Valley Pathways School will strive to meet the needs of all of our students as they work towards achieving both academic and personal success in their journey to becoming contributing members of our society. VPS will work with our parents and community to create a safe and nurturing environment for our students where each student’s academic, emotional, physical, and social needs can be met. Community partnerships will also be fostered and developed to help students learn about potential careers and post-secondary educational opportunities to help students successfully transition from high school. This will be accomplished through the policies established in the Valley Pathways School Compact which is located at the link below.
