Welcome to the School Advocacy Hamilton web site!

School can be a confusing time for some students and parents--You are not alone!  There are a lot of parents and students who feel frustrated, intimidated or uninformed when dealing with teachers and principals at school.

The purpose of this web site is to empower parents and students so that your ideas and wishes are considered in the decisions made about your child’s education.

If you are the legal guardian of a child in the public education system, you have a right to participate in some decisions made about your child’s education.

This web site will tell you about the rights and responsibilities of parents and students, and will give you tips and strategies that will help you in making sure the school is meeting your child’s education needs.

This web site will help you to:

  • Build healthy relationships with the teachers and the principal of the school
  • Make yourself heard when there is a problem
  • Create a positive and productive school experience for your child
