The Rockaway Times
for Children of New York, a
non-profit organization that
works on behalf of children
who are at greatest risk for
academic failure due to fac-
tors such as poverty, disabili-
ty, race, ethnicity, immigrant
status or involvement in the
foster care system. However,
the group’s web site, www.ad-
vocatesforchildren.org, is an
invaluable resource for any
parent. Tips for everything
from homework help, un-
derstanding Common Core
standards, to applying to
high school can be found
there.
All parents should under-
stand their rights as man-
dated by law. A detailed but
easy-to-understand
expla-
nation of those rights can
be found at http://schools.
nyc.gov/NR/rdonlyres/FD-
3D0D8B-017B-4D6C-B413-
E765C253AB79/0/2013Par-
entsBi l lofRightsFinal_Eng-
lish081015.pdf. The first
is the right to a free pub-
lic school education. If
your child is enrolled in a
those services must be pro-
vided at no charge by the
public school system.
Parents have the right to ac-
cess information about their
child. They also have the
right to file complaints and/
or appeals regarding matters
affecting their child’s educa-
tion. This includes the right
to appeal promotional deci-
sions. It is at the May par-
ent-teacher conference that
parents must be informed if
their child will not be pro-
moted to the next grade lev-
el.
Along with rights must
come responsibilities. As a
child’s first educator, a par-
ent has the responsibility
to be aware of their child’s
school work, progress and
problems. Education should
be a priority. It is a partner-
ship between parents and
teachers. When attending
the parent-teacher meet-
ing this spring, respect the
staff ’s evaluation of your
child. However, contribute
to the conversation and be
firm if you feel your child’s
needs are not being met.
