In relation to college readiness
The importance of following a syllabus in college, and how critical writing skills are, when navigating one's way through exams and term papers etc. It is my concern that the students may not be getting enough written experience to be prepared, as so much emphasis is placed on the technology.
Although they are in high school, some kids don't pass important information home to us parents. I try to stay on top of important matters, yet sometimes I find the deadline has passed, or it's coming up and there may now be a late fee, such as an SAT seating.
Post secondary school counseling for the parents as well
I would like to know how RA is helping my child prepare. Are they encouraging them to be realistic in their choices or letting them dream big? Are they just offering help on college essays, or are the kids really getting the help the need with that?
Concepts don't seem to be actualized
Our observation is that while the concept is great, putting those concepts into practice seems to be lacking.
Parent access to current projects and grades
I received an invitation from one teacher to be allowed to view what my student is working on, however, I'm not sure on grades or current projects that are being done. Its difficult to rely on input from your child only.
