University School of Milwaukee enters into a Parent-School Partnership with all School parents. This Partnership is based on the belief that USM faculty and administration must work together with parents in all aspects of School life for the benefit of each child. Collectively, the School's Mission Statement, Guiding Principles, Diversity Statement, and the Common Trust form the foundation for the principles of good practice that are included in this Partnership.
The Parent-School Partnership document, instituted during the 2013-2014 school year and shared with all School parents each year, includes both USM's expectations of parents, as well as those things that parents should expect from USM. It covers:
- Environment for Lifelong Learning
- Right to Privacy
- Financial Responsibility
- Participation in Community Life
In partnership, USM and parents can ensure the most positive experience for every student and help strengthen our community of lifelong learners for the benefit of all.
