At the beginning of the school year, it is vital to get to know your students and their families. Having your students fill out a "Student Information Sheet" is one of the best ways to do that.
This information form asks for important information about the student, from health concerns to rapport-building interest questions. It also collects two family members' contact information (phone numbers and email) in one handy spot. There is a technology section that lets you measure how many of your students have access to various technologies at home -- an important consideration when assigning projects. Finally, this form includes a spot for both the student and a parent/guardian to sign, ensuring that the contact information is accurate.
