Can I talk to my child's teacher?

It is important for you to talk with your child's teacher to find out how your child is doing in the class.

It is also important to ask the teacher about basic information, such as classroom size, teaching style and homework expectations.

In elementary schools, children often have one teacher for most of their subjects. In secondary (high) school, students have different teachers for each subject.

You can meet with teachers during parent-teacher interviews. They are scheduled during the school year. These interviews are an opportunity to talk about your child's progress or difficulties.

You can also make an appointment to talk to the teacher at anytime. Contact your school, or the teacher directly, to make an appointment.

Some schools have settlement workers. You can meet with the settlement worker at your child's school to talk about any difficulties your child may be having with settling into the school and in Canada.

Many community agencies can help you find information about school for your children. To find help, go to Services Near Me and search for "settlement services" in your area.
