How Would Your School or District Answer These 5 Questions about Relationships?

Each week during #ALedchat (Alabama Education Chat on Twitter), you can find a tweet posted about relationships and the importance of them in a school. Positive relationships between all stakeholders is what makes a school successful. 

Here are five questions for reflection, which may prompt you to initiate changes at your school or district or perhaps celebrate what you are doing in your school or district. I would love to hear from you in the comments.

1. Could a student go through 12 years of school and not receive a positive phone call to the home?

2. Could a student miss 3 or 4 days in your school or district without anyone, other than the attendance clerk (or automated caller), contacting the home to find out how the school might help?

3. Could a parent be treated rudely by the secretary when entering the school's office?

4. What kind of plan does your school have to make sure a child new to the district or school gets off to a good start?

5. What kind of plan does your school or district have to make sure a new teacher gets off to a good start?

Did these questions cause you to reflect on your school's practices? 
What other questions could be added?
