| Open class days for studentsf parents are mostly held once a term at schools. The schools are required to inform the parents of the schedule including subjects being taught on open class day beforehand, including events such as PTA conferences, grade meetings and class meetings which may be held on the same day.
When schools hold open class days in which visitors are expected to visit the schools for a certain period of time, schools need to announce open class day objectives and the way to undertake visits widely in and outside the school. When classes are open to local people, the school should provide information on the time schedule of classes and the content of subjects being taught in each class for visitors through newsletters or website.
On open class days, it is very crucial to strengthen safety controls by checking visitors at the school entrance and by patrolling on school premises in order to prevent potentially dangerous people from sneaking into the schools.
Moreover, It is also important to receive feedback from visitors in order to improve classes and the school in the future.
