The Role of the Parent in the CST

We want to hear from you! 

·       During the CST meeting we want to hear what you are noticing at home and how you feel your child is doing in school (academic, social and behavior).

·       After the meeting please stay in communication with us.  The sharing of information does not end once the meeting is over; it is an on-going process.
