Parent resolution process

Instituto Justice and Leadership Academy strives to maintain close communication with all parents and guardians of our students.

Family members are strongly encouraged to attend student/parent/teacher conferences that occur on November 6, 2020 and April 9, 2021. This event allows family members to meet teachers and IJLA staff to discuss student’s academic progress towards graduation and their post secondary plan.

Parents and guardians are also invited to arrange meetings with teachers and staff as needed by emailing the teacher/staff directly or calling the front office at (773) 890- 8060 to arrange a meeting.

IJLA staff members will also call students’ homes in the case of unexcused absences, excessive tardiness, or to discuss other educational program concerns or successes relating to their sons or daughters.

The school will host quarterly symposiums where parents and guardians are invited to visit the school, see the work of the youth, and participate in workshops.

    We have an open door policy, so if a concern were to arise, parents/guardians are encouraged to:

  •      Contact the appropriate staff member directly (see directory on the attached page)
  •      Call the school to set an appointment with the appropriate staff member

If the issue is not resolved by this meeting or if the parent/guardian is unsatisfied, a meeting with the principal will be arranged.

It is our hope that we can work together to ensure your student’s success. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns.
