CooperationTo build for a strong learning community, the administrative staff at ISP expect parents to respond to requests from our office in a timely manner. Ignoring an issue with student will only hurt the student short term or long term and may even hurt other students which is something ISP will not allow to happen. ISP administration may elect to suspend a student until the parents respond to requests. No response will result in terminating services to the student.
