    Statement of Purpose

    East Early College High School is dedicated to working with parents, students, community members, Houston Community College, business partners and other stakeholders to improve student academic achievement. The goal of East Early College High School is that all of our students graduate from high school with an Associate’s Degree making them prepared and ready for chosen college and career paths. Since the parents are the child’s first teacher, parents are extremely valuable in the educational process. East Early College highly encourages parent participation on our campus. We strive to keep our parents informed of parent meetings, activities, grade reporting and important testing dates. East Early College High School wants parents to feel welcome and respected when they are on campus and we want parents to know there is an open line of communication (with administrators and teachers).

    Parents of East Early College High School are encouraged to do the following:

    ·         Stay aware of your child’s academic and behavioral performance in addition to their attendance and punctuality

    ·         Work with teachers, staff and administrators to help your child reach high academic expectations

    ·         Communicate effectively with your child on the importance of college and career readiness

    ·         Encourage your child to follow school rules

    Policy

    East Early College High School will hold an annual Open House and all parents will be invited and asked to attend. During this Open House, parents will be informed of academic/ behavior expectations for the year. In addition, there will be an annual Title 1, Part A, where parents will be informed of their school’s participation and an explanation regarding the requirements of the school and the rights of the parents. Also there will be four Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) meetings throughout the year (2 afternoon, 2 mornings). East Early College High School will involve parents in all parts of Title 1 including planning, review and improvement of Title 1 programs (SDMC, PAC meetings and other Title 1 meetings). Parents will be informed by way of calendars, newsletters, flyers, updated school website, the marquee, emails, letters mailed home and by our automated phone messaging system.

Parents may also request conferences regarding the education of their child at any time.

          Also East Early College High school staff, teachers and parents will work collaboratively to create a School-Parent Compact that outlines how the parents, students and school will work together, communicate and help each student reach the academic expectations set forth by the state.
