Kacy posted a link to the questions for the Principal Life chat for Wednesday evening twitter chat. The first question is How do you encourage teachers to keep close contact with parents? Also, how do you monitor to assure this takes place? That got me thinking about creating a parent contact log in Google Docs. Make it a template. Easy to fill out and then share the doc directly with the grade level principal. Not sure what to include, I started searching online and found a great site in getting ready for the first year of teaching from NC. The forms on the site are helpful along with a ton of great information for first year teachers. I know things have changed a lot since I went through the teacher program and there is so helpful information for veteran teachers.
