Parent Coordinator

My name is Mr. Ahmad and I am the Parent Coordinator at P.S.217. My role as a parent coordinator is to work closely with you to support your child through his/her elementary school experience. My goal is to ensure that you and your family feel welcome at P.S.217 and that your voice is heard. Your suggestions, recommendations, and ideas matter to us, and I will ensure that I bridge the communication between you and the school staff.

Some of my responsibilities are:

· Serve as a facilitator for parent and school community concerns and issues including, for example, school policies or facilities issues.

· Conduct outreach to engage parents in their children’s education.

· Convene regular parent meetings and events around topics of key concerns to parents.

· Attend parent meetings along with the principal, where appropriate.

· Work with the school parent association.

· Maintain ongoing contact with community organizations that are involved with providing services to the school’s educational program.

Throughout the course of the year, I will keep in contact with you by e-mail or a letter home with your child; calendars, flyers, letters about events, and programs will be available to you.

Thank you for your commitment to your child’s future success and I look forward to a great school year! Below you can find my contact information.
