Our part of the partnership…
We make decisions based on the belief that MCP's goal is to empower and support you to be your child's best teacher.
We exist to provide support, guidance, and enrichment opportunities that will enhance and encourage each child's educational journey.
We are here to partner with parents and offer support, knowledge, feedback and guidance. We also provide our State's required consultations with both the child and parent. We encourage each parent's active participation, and allow both parents and students a voice in the program's development.
We also recognize that in order to run our program successfully we need the input, respect, and cooperation of students, parents, teachers, and administrators, as well as any other staff or community members who may participate.
A MCP teacher/consultant meets with enrolled students/families to provide the following services:
¨ Discuss curriculum and goals
¨ Develop/modify the Written Student Learning Plan
¨ Guide parents when choosing materials.
¨ Assist parents in assessing student progress
¨ Offer encouragement, wisdom (however humble), and insight from their own teaching experiences.
We recognize the teacher/consultant as a person of many roles including advisor, supporter, observer, learner, and facilitator. Teacher/consultants have the unique opportunity to guide and support our families and are always expected to act in the family's best interest.
MCP assumes responsibility for the Written Student Learning Plan and ensuring that progress is being made toward goals.
