• Family Support and Involvement

    South St. Paul Public Schools welcomes family support and involvement in their child’s education. We all do better when we work collaboratively! We encourage active participation and welcome all families.  

    South St. Paul Public Schools communicate to families in English and their primary home language. Parent/Teacher conferences are held in the fall and spring with interpretive services available. Parent-Teacher Conferences are utilized to establish relationships and partner with EL families. During conferences, families and students are encouraged to engage in goal-setting with EL and general education teachers. Additionally, school staff seek input and feedback about the effectiveness of the school’s plan of service for the student. Funds of Knowledge
