Title I Family and Community Engagement Policy
Under The Every Student Succeeds Act, each Title I school jointly develops with parents a written parental involvement policy that describes the means for carrying out the requirements of the legislation.
It is the policy of the administration, faculty, and staff of your child’s school to:
- Involve parents, in an organized, ongoing, and timely way, in the planning, review, and improvement of programs through open house, online access to student grades, newsletters, and one-one-one parent contacts.
- Hold an Annual Title I Meetings at the beginning at the beginning of the year to inform parents their school’s participation in Title I and to explain its requirements.
- Provide information to parents in a timely manner through mass phone calls, open house, online access to student grades, newsletters, weekly folders and one-one parent contacts.
- Provide parents with explanations of the school’s overall student achievement and their child’s individual student test results by sending information home and sharing at parent conferences.
- Provide parents a description and explanation of the school’s curriculum, the assessments used to measure student progress, and the levels students are expected to meet through parent conferences, newsletters, and school/district websites.
- Offer regular meetings for parents to make suggestions, share experiences, and participate in decisions relating to the education of their child through open house, online access to student grades, newsletters, and one-on-one parent contacts.
- Provide timely responses to parents’ suggestions via phone calls, newsletters, emails, and conferences.
- Develop and distribute a School-Parent Compact.
- Provide family and community involvement programs that provide materials and training to help parents work with educators to monitor and improve their child’s achievement.
