• Don’t wait for a report card to find out how your student is doing. Contact teachers regularly for progress updates, and check online grades often.
  • Get involved at your student’s school. You’ll get to know your student’s friends and teachers – and show your student how much you care.
  • Understand academic requirements for college and make sure your student registers for courses that will ensure admission to college. 
  • Provide a quiet study place and stock it with supplies. Set rules for homework completion, and limit access to television, cell phone and social media until assignments are completed.
