Hi Sandra,

Thanks so much for submitting this idea! It speaks to the need for positive communication between teachers and parent -- and now that I think about it, the positive phone calls could go in both directions. It would be great if you could add more details to your idea or share personal stories about experiences that you've had. Are there protocols you've experienced? Is there a way you think this could be put into practice without overburdening teachers? THANKS!

Great idea. I'd give teachers 1/2 or a full day off to do this well. The school should publicize this practice and a simple protocol. Something like a 5-minute call max and the teacher has one topic and the parent gets to pick one too. You'd need an easy-to-use online scheduler to allow parents to book 5-minute slots.
