Resources for Parents


We surveyed more than 1,000 parents to find out what they thought of personalized learning. Most had not heard much about it, but almost every parent wanted to learn more! Here’s how parents can learn about personalized learning in their own community and get involved to make sure these systems meet the needs to students with disabilities.

How can parents play a role in personalized learning?
LEARN WHAT YOUR SCHOOL IS DOING

Find out if your school has any personalized learning initiatives and how they might impact your child’s education.

  • Find out what your school calls its personalized learning initiative and how long it has been in place.
  • Ask your principal who in your school is responsible for implementing personalized learning initiatives.
UNDERSTAND HOW YOUR SCHOOL MEETS DIVERSE NEEDS

If your school is implementing personalized learning, ask how it meets the needs of students with disabilities.

  • Ask your principal or special education director how your school and district incorporate practices that support students with disabilities.
  • Join with other interested parents and meet with your special education director and the personalized learning team to discuss how they can collaborate.
MAXIMIZE THE BENEFIT OF PERSONALIZED LEARNING

Take advantage of the new ways parents can engage in personalized learning if your district is implementing it.

  • If your school uses online systems, portals or apps to collect and monitor student work, you can track your child’s progress and ensure that high expectations are part of the everyday learning experience.
  • Many personalized learning systems produce valuable data. Ask your child’s teacher if data from your child’s schoolwork might be useful in making sure your child is receiving the right supports.
