From the school

"Del Sol High School embraces the following strategies that help inform parents and guardians about the educational successes of their children:

- Teachers use Edline to communicate with parents, guardians, and students regarding lesson plans, classroom activities, homework, current grades, and attendance.

- Quarterly community newsletters are mailed to all students' home and are made available in the administrative offices for visitors.

- Parent conferences are conducted for struggling freshman and on an as-needed basis with teachers, counselors, and administrators.

- Flyers are prepared and mailed to homes to inform families of upcoming events, including high-stakes testing dates, open houses, orientation nights, advanced placement information nights, awards nights, AVID meetings, seasonal parent sports nights, and the annual multicultural extravaganzas.

- The autodialer system is used to inform parents of absences, as well as important test dates.

- Administrators, parent advisory committee participants, department coordinators, athletic and student activities directors, and student council representatives maintain a dialogue on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis to share information and plan for the future."
