Oakdale STEAM Elementary School provides opportunities for parents to submit comments on the Title I project and/or from parent meetings. The Title I project is available in the front office, and parents are reminded through newsletters, meetings, etc. that their input is important. Minutes are recorded at each Title I/SIC/PTO parent meetings to document parent suggestions.
Parents may access the Title I project anytime. Sign-in sheets and comment forms are located in the front of each notebook containing the Title I project. The Title I project is available from the front office at individual Title I schools as well as at the Central Office Academics and Accountability Department.
Any parent comment/suggestions will be responded to in a timely manner, to include but not limited to: face-to-face conferences, telephone conversations, or e-mail or written correspondences.
Comments from parents that indicate the parents are dissatisfied with components of the project application will be addressed at the district level and forwarded to the State Department of Education following the guidelines outlined in the State Department of Education (SDE) Complaint Resolution document (see attached). Parent suggestions from parent meetings will also be addressed at the district level if necessary and will be forwarded to the SDE if needed.
Parents will be notified annually of their rights to be informed of the highly qualified status of teachers and teaching assistants in the individual schools. Parent/Guardian Right to Know information will be published on the district web page, school web pages and in the Title I school newsletter provided to parents. Oakdale STEAM Elementary School will respond to a parent’s request in a timely manner once the request has been received. The response to a parent’s request may be delivered in one or more of the following formats: face-to-face conferences, telephone conversation, or e-mail or written correspondences. Follow-up communication will be provided, if needed.
