1 Teacher Home Visit Program (THVP) Status Report January 2010

2 Through relationships developed through two teacher home visits each year to students homes, the program aims to: improve academic achievement and test scores, decrease discipline referrals, increase student attendance, increase parental involvement, (including parent/teacher conferences) increase homework completion, and improve behavior and attitudes about school. 2

3 Two teacher trainings Two home visits conducted by pairs of teachers Two family events at school Teacher participation in the Teacher Home Visit Program is voluntary. 3

4 Currently implemented at four SLPS schools: Buder, Dunbar, and Henry Elementary Schools, and Stix Early Childhood Center.

10 It was exceptional; I love knowing that staff and teachers care as much about my daughters education as I do. The visit gave my child the opportunity to have her voice heard in her own daily environment; this also gave the teachers a chance to get to know her. I appreciate the home visit program …this is a wonderful step by the St. Louis School District. 10
