International School Dhaka (ISD) on Monday organized an online event to enable the parents of its students to meet and learn about their children’s teachers amidst the pandemic.
The event, called “Back to School: Meet Our Teachers,” gave parents the opportunity to meet and learn about their children’s teachers, receive an overview of each class and ask questions.
The event was arranged through the online videoconferencing platforms Zoom and Google Meet.
Marking the occasion, Chris Boyle, secondary principal of International School Dhaka, said: "Parents are incredibly important partners with teachers in the education of their child and research shows that parents who are highly involved in their child's education have numerous positive outcomes, including increased motivation and improved academic performance. These events have brought parents, students, and teachers together to build community, develop a common understanding of ISD's rigorous curriculum and skill development, and allow parents to ask questions.
While visiting online Back to School sessions I saw many smiling faces and heard from countless appreciative parents who shared how much their sons and daughters were enjoying their lessons, despite the challenges of online learning."
