FIRST TASK IS TO ASK R
The First Task Is to Ask sheets contain simple questions that can be given to parents and student advocates who seek answers to questions that they may not know how to ask. The purpose of the sheets is to equip and empower parents and the community with an informational tool to assist in engaging school and district personnel in an informed conversation. The First Task sheets also serve as meeting topics for parent or community group meetings. Employees/Experts whose job is centered on the sheet’s particular topic have created these questions/sheets.
Many organizations throughout the city share these sheets with their staff, students, and parents. These sheets are tools to address and improve (family/community) access to information, advocacy, and parent and school accountability. Furthermore, the questions serve as a way to bring comfort and cohesion between student advocates and the appropriate staff members. School leaders give these sheets to parents during parent-teacher conferences or community events. School staff can use these sheets to drive parent conferences, specifically student-led conferences. These sheets are translated in other languages and can be provided upon request.
