Technically, I don't have any parents with that specific phone number. But that post title is a lot more exciting than "Parent Contact Log". Definitely. 

I have gone back and forth every year with exactly how I want to track my contact with parents. Last year I had an Excel spreadsheet with everyone listed. Problem? I was never right there in that document when I needed to be. So this year I'm trying the old dinosaur method - you know, paper and pencil? Just kidding, just kidding. 


I tried to make it as easy as possible - so this is what I came up with. I think keeping track of these types of items is all about what you are comfortable with - so if you like paper/pencil go with it. If you'd rather use a digital format, go for it! Again -whatever suits you. :) 

This year - this is what suits me...

I do so much on the computer that going back to paper seems a little strange, but I think it will be helpful to have the document accessible anywhere - I can take the binder, write myself a little note, whatever. 
 
First page includes pertinent student information and then a few spots to document parent contact.
2nd page and any page after is for more documentation! I put extra copies of the 2nd page in the back of the binder - that way they are on hand and ready to go when I need them!

Contact documentation close-up:
For the type, I plan on circling whether it was phone, email, paper or in person (the little icons). The reason type is the same - circling/highlighting/grabbing whatever is handy and marking it! For the outcome, I am going to write down a little more information about what the reason was and the outcome. 

For example: 
September 4     Phone     Academic     Johnny knows all of his letters - talked to mom!

Hopefully this helps me this year! What do you do to document parent contact? Do you have to? 
Leave me some comment love and let me know!
