'Hotline' for parents
Parents: Here's your chance to Dial A Principal. Get answers to your questions about schools, children, and education by calling the HOTLINE toll-free, 1-800-404-9993, Thursday, Oct. 24, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The 1996 HOTLINE, manned by volunteer principals, will originate from the annual conference of the Elementary School Principals Association of Washington, attended by approximately 500 principals.
Association members will operate this toll-free HOTLINE to promote family involvement in schools. Parents who are curious, troubled, or simply need some reassurance regarding their child's education may speak confidentially with a volunteer principal.
HOTLINE will accept calls from parents, community members, teachers, and students on topics ranging from preschool to high school, discipline policies, tests, or learning difficulties.
