Parents & Communities
Universal Learning Academy welcomes parents as partners in education. According to a Michigan Department of Education fact sheet, What Research Says About Parent Involvement In Children’s Education In Relation to Academic Achievement, parental involvement is a key component of every student’s academic achievement, leading to higher grades, higher test scores, and higher graduation rates, as well as better attendance and fewer behavior problems. And, the more involved parents are, the greater the positive impact.
ULA offers many opportunities for parental activism within the school community, from volunteering at school functions to participating in decision-making via the Parent-Teacher Organization. We encourage you to check your child’s grades online and sign up for email progress alerts. Your involvement helps your child understand that his or her academic success is one of your highest priorities.
With mutual support, cooperation, communication, and effort, ULA staff and parents join together to provide our students with the best possible foundation for life: a first-class education.
Specific Learning Disability
The Academy is implementing Pattern of Strengths and Weaknesses as the District process for determining the existence of a Specific Learning Disability for all students at all grade levels. More information may be found on Wayne RESA’s website or by contacting the school principal.
