·       provide ways for communication between teachers and parents/guardians using progress reports, updating online grades, and holding Fall and Spring Student Led Conferences for the purpose of reporting students’ achievement and growth

·      take advantage of available technology (iPads, internet, smart Phones, etc.) to assist students with time management strategies
