Parents can support student learning by accessing the STAAR resources to get acquainted with the learning targets students are aiming for. You can also support learning at home by:
- Prioritizing academics and personal goal-setting
- Making sure that your child is completing all assignments
- Helping your child develop good study habits, thinking skills, and a positive attitude towards education from an early age
- Ensuring that your child has good attendance at school
- Staying in communication with your child's teacher
- Helping your child learn how to follow directions carefully
- Connecting your child to instructional resources provided by UCISD to engage your child with learning standards
- Encouraging your child to read as much as possible, and to increase vocabulary. Even reading magazines, newspapers, and comic books regularly will help improve his/her reading skills
- Fostering your child's interest in college, career, and/or military pathways.
