Student Handbook: XV – Parental Involvement
PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES
De La Salle encourages parents to become involved in the academic progress of their sons and daughters. To encourage this involvement, De La Salle offers a Back-to-School Mini-Schedule Night in the fall and in the spring so that parents can meet teachers and receive an academic overview of students’ courses. De La Salle also offers a Parent-Teacher Conference opportunity outside of school hours in the fall and the spring so that parents can meet with teachers individually.
Any additional face-to-face Parent-Teacher conference must be by appointment only.
Parents are expressly prohibited from conferencing with teachers outside of an agreed upon appointment time.
PARENTS ANNUAL GIVING
The Parents Annual Giving (PAG) Drive at DLS takes place each fall under the direction of the Development Office and the Parents Club. The goal of this drive is to raise funds to meet the difference between projected expenses of a student education and actual tuition income. This once-a-year drive is staffed by parent volunteers.
De La Salle families are contacted by fellow parents for a financial pledge which is tax-deductible. The focus of this campaign is to insure that De La Salle continues to offer quality education and make a difference in young people’s lives. The PAG Drive is considered of equal importance with tuition payment for all parents. A major fund-raising goal for De La Salle is to have 100% response from parents for this drive.
