Connecting Teachers and Families at Home

  • When teachers and families connect through home visits, relationships start to flourish between the two parties and together, as co-educators can help students succeed academically.  Parent Teacher Home Visits are voluntary meetings designed to build relationship between equal partners, so that the most important adults in a child’s life, at home and at school, can work together to support the child’s learning and growth. Parent Teacher Home Visits were introduced to Washoe in 2009 and has been a great way for teachers to build meaningful relationships with families ever since. 

  • "Sometimes, parents think that the teachers and others at the school don't really care about our kids.  But the simple fact that they take the time to come to visit us demonstrates that they do care." - WCSD Parent
