Brockton Public Schools

School Committee Policy


It is the general goal of the Brockton Public Schools to foster relationships with parents that encourage cooperation between the home and school in establishing and achieving common educational goals for students.

While parents are individually responsible for their children, the School System provides direct services of education and indirect services of childcare for students during the time when they are within the supervision of school personnel. Consistent with these shared responsibilities and as appropriate to the maturity of the student, members of the school staff will consult with parents regarding student progress and achievement, methods to enhance student development, and matters of correction.

Additionally, parental involvement in the schools is encouraged through regular communication with the school principal and staff, the parent/teacher organizations, the school volunteer program, and other opportunities for participation in school activities and Brockton Public Schools programs.
