FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Dear Families, Proper communication within any organization can sometimes be confusing. There will be times when you have a concern or question regarding school-wide policy, classroom or discipline issues at MVMPCS. At this time, I would like to review the chain of command, for times that you may have a concern. If you have a concern about something related to your childs classroom activities, first ask the child. Try to help the child become an advocate for himself/herself. This can often be a difficult learning process for the child. It will take time, practice, and plenty of encouragement. If there is a concern that the child is not yet able to communicate to the teacher, discuss your concerns directly with the classroom teacher. If you have any questions or concerns related to an individual student within a classroom, first discuss this with the classroom teacher. Please allow ample time for a resolution to your concern. If the classroom teacher is not able to address an issue to your satisfaction, then you will need to discuss your concern with the Principal. After meeting with the Principal, if you feel that you have an unresolved concern related to the instructional program or disciplinary decisions, you should address these concerns with our FCPS Instructional Director, Dr. Keith Harris. If you have a concern regarding the implementation of school wide policies, first direct your concerns to the Principal. Please remember, the Principal is your direct link to the Governing Council, MMCI, and FCPS. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the charter, please direct those to the President of MMCI. Have a wonderful weekend, Cita
