Family engagement is an integral part of school culture at Paul. We believe that building strong, positive relationships with scholars and families directly correlates to success in the classroom. Teachers spend a great deal of time communicating with families both inside and outside of contract hours. Each teacher at Paul has the expectation to conduct SLC’s (student-led-conferences) which is also a strong part of our school culture. These critical meetings take the place of parent teacher conferences and occur three times a year. *** All middle school teachers have the expectation to complete a minimum of 5 home visits per advisory (quarter) during the school year. Teachers are expected to attend training at no cost to the teacher regarding homevisit conduct prior to the start of the school year. Teachers are fairly compensated for these visits and further questions regarding home visits can be answered by your FELT lead during your onboarding process.
- Perform clerical duties, as required, relating to textbooks, instructional supplies, student reports and records, attendance reports, etc.
- Additional responsibilities may arise during the school year. This could include but is not limited to: lunch or afternoon duty, attending staff and student field trips, open houses, parent-teacher conferences, home visits, and other events involving parents and students as needed. They will be communicated to all employees with as much notice and flexibility as possible.
