5057 - Parental Involvement In the Title I Program

5057

District Title I Parent and Family Engagement Policy

 

The school district will jointly develop with parents a School-Parent-Student Compact that outlines how the parents, school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership to help children achieve the State’s high standards.

 

The written District Parent and Family Engagement Policy will be jointly developed and distributed to parents and family members of participating children and the local community in an understandable format and to the extent practicable, in a language the parents can understand.  An annual evaluation of the content and effectiveness of the Parent and Family Engagement Policy will be used to design evidence-based strategies for more effective parental involvement, to revise the Parent and Family Engagement Policy and to remove barriers to participation.

 

The school district recognizes the unique needs of students who are being served in its Title I program, and the importance of parent and family engagement in the Title I program.  Parent and family engagement in the Title I Program shall include, but is not limited to:

 

  1. An annual meeting to which all parents of participating children will be invited to inform parents of their school’s participation under this part, to explain the requirements of this part, and the right of the parents to be involved.  Invitations may take the form of notes sent with students or announcements in the school newsletter.  Additional meetings may be scheduled, based upon need and interest for such meetings.
     
  2. An explanation of the details for the child’s and parents’ participation, including but not limited to: curriculum objectives, the forms of academic assessment used to measure student progress and the achievement levels of the challenging State academic standards, type and extent of participation, parental input in educational decisions, coordination and integration with other Federal, State, and district programs, and evaluations of progress. 
     
  3. Opportunities for participation in parent involvement activities such as training to help parents work with their children to improve achievement. A goal of these parent activities is to provide parents with opportunities to participate in decisions relating to the education of their students, where appropriate.
     
  4. The district will, to the extent practicable, provide parents of limited English proficiency, parents with disabilities, parents with limited literacy, are economically disadvantaged, are of a racial or minority background or parents of migratory children with opportunities for involvement in the Title I Program. Communication to parents about student progress and the district’s other Title I Program communications will be provided in the language used in the home to the extent practicable.  Responses to parent concerns will be provided in a timely manner.
     
  5. Opportunities for parent-teacher conferences, in addition to those regularly scheduled by the school district, if requested by the parents or as deemed necessary by school district staff.

 

  1. The district will coordinate and integrate parental involvement programs and activities with other programs in the community.  These may include cooperation with other community programs such as Head Start and preschools and other community services such as the public library. 

 

  1. Educate teachers, specialized instructional support personnel, principals, and other school leaders, with the assistance of parents in the value and utility of contributions of parents, how to reach out to, communicate with and work with parents as equal partners.

 

This policy shall be reviewed annually at the annual meeting where concerned parties can have a conversation about possible changes to the Parent and Family Engagement Policy.
