I like to make sure I collect information on my students and have it all within an arm’s length! That’s why I created this student information sheet. You can use this sheet to collect all the important information, such as parental contact information, religious restrictions, allergies, transportation, and much more!
I like to take this student information sheet, hole-punch it, and place it in a binder that is sectioned off by each student. I also place a communication log and an observation log in each student’s section. The communication log is where I keep track of any communication (email, phone, planner, etc.) with parents. My observation log is where I note any important things I notice about that student that I need to remember come conference time.
At first glance, it may seem like a bit much, but when it comes to providing the foundation for an education they’ll be using for the rest of their lives, is it really possible to go over-the-top? Plus, the best part is that you don’t even need to fill it out yourself! I pass these out on the first day and ask for the parents to fill out the information and have their child return the form to me for my records.
