6. Hold 1st Parent Conference: Arrange a parent conference, unless the next scheduled conference is within two or three weeks. Develop the Individual Action Plan with the parents at the conference. If appropriate, invite the student to participate in this meeting as well to add his or her own suggestions for personal responsibility. Review responsibilities together, set a time-frame for measuring success, and get the parents' signatures on the form. In some cases, teachers may want to write the Individual Action Plan ahead of time rather than with the parents (and perhaps the student) in conference. The choice depends on the level of communication that exists between the two .Parties and the amount of control the teachers feel is necessary for them to hold in order to receive a good response from the family. 7. Hold lad Parent Conference If the steps outlined in the Individual Action Plan do not improve the situation by the time identified on the plan or if the parents do not comply with the plan, call a second conference with the parent(s), the Administrator, and the student, if the student is to have responsibilities on the Individual Action Plan. Include other teachers or specialists where appropriate. At this conference the Administrator should be prepared to state to the parents that either the school is not able to serve the student without better compliance or that the school will require better compliance if a re-enrollment contract will be offered fur next year (this depends on the timing of this process). The Administrator should complete a confidential Education Agreement (Attendance) at this meeting, and secure the parents' signatures. Provide the parents with a copy of the school's Policy on Student Progress. The Administrator should answer any questions the parents may have about the policy and procedures from this point forward. A brief summary of this conference must be written by the teacher, in accordance with the Policy on Student Progress. The original of this summary should go to the parents and a copy should be stored in the SNAP Notebook. 8. Wrap-Up: Year-End Summary At the end of the school year, or when a satisfactory outcome has been reached, whichever comes first, you should summarize the result for each student for whom you started a SNAP Notebook. The YearEnd Summary allows you to identify all of your recommendations and the level to which they were followed, to identify the enrollment impact of the process and to determine whether the parents and/or you were satisfied with the outcome. The original of this completed form should be filed with the SNAP Notebook papers in the student's file, and a copy given to the appropriate office personnel to record the data for future evaluation. This information should be kept confidential at all times. 118
