Communication End of Year SMARTR Outcome

Based on school survey data by June 2021, 90% of Groveton families will report that:

  • school staff works with them to identify academic and socio-emotional skills that their children can develop to be successful.
  • the school staff keeps them informed of their child’s progress. 
  • our school encourages parents and educators to share information such as student strengths and learning preferences.
  • our school provides timely information on instruction, events, and safety procedures.


  • Increase communication opportunities between teachers and families school-wide in order to support students’ academic success and opportunities for growth as well as social emotional strengths and areas of need.
  • Evaluate school-wide communication opportunities to maximize support for students and families in order to support academic and socio-emotional needs of  students.
