To support families in your role as supervisors of student learning, CPS teachers are:

  • Communicating about each week’s learning plan and each day’s learning expectations;
  • Providing feedback on student work as frequently as possible;
  • Available to students and families for at least 30-45 minutes per day for group or individual check-ins;
  • Integrating IEP, 504 and English Language Learner accommodations into their teaching.
