Mountainville Academy (MA) strives to ensure effective communication between parents and the school, and student organization and preparation for each subject through the use of a docket and accompanying learning plan. The docket is an expandable wallet-like folder containing file folders for each of the student's subjects and helps students keep all their paperwork in one place for easy access at school as well as at home. The docket is also an indispensable tool for tracking data to monitor student progress. The learning plan helps parents, students, and teachers know what is going on each day and in each subject covered in their grade.
Mountainville Academy provides each new student with one docket at no cost. Students keep the docket from year to year and are responsible for taking care of their docket. If the docket is lost, damaged or unusable, parents must purchase another one from the front office.
Please note: Dockets are not meant to carry books or other large/heavy items. Over-filling will damage the docket.
Students are expected to place their paperwork in the appropriate folders within the docket and keep their desks free of loose papers. The docket is taken home every night with the student and brought back to school each day. This ensures that the student has what is needed both at home and at school to study or complete assignments.
Each week students receive new learning plans outlining what will be taught in each subject that week, as well as space to facilitate communication between parents and the teacher. The learning plan must be kept in the docket to ensure students have it in every class and at home.
