The parents’ briefcase is a device that has been tested regionally since 2010. Following the law of orientation and programming for the refoundation of the School of 8 July 2013 defining the reinforcement of the cooperation of the School with parents as a lever for the success of children this device has spread widely throughout the territory.
The parents’ kit aims to improve relations between parents and the School in order to establish a bond of confidence of the parents towards the school. It applies today to all pupils entering primary school or middle school.
It is a tool of “coeducation” which is a concept designating the fact of associating the parents with the educational actions carried out by the education staff at the school allowing a better cooperation between professionals and parents.
The scheme encourages the organization of numerous meeting sessions between teachers and each parent, based on the representatives of parents’ associations and provides numerous resources, on a dedicated website, to enable the animation of these meetings thanks to many theoretical and methodological contributions.
The Ministry of Education wants this highly popular system to be extended to all classes from primary school to the end of high school.
