Parent/Family Involvement Plan

 

The Board of Education believes that the education of each child is a responsibility shared by school and family.  The Board recognizes the need for a partnership between districts and families that will provide for two-way communication and will support educational opportunities for students and families.  Parental involvement is crucial to the success of Title I programs.  As stipulated by federal law, the district and parents jointly develop and agree upon a written parental involvement policy that will be distributed to patrons.  In order to support active parental involvement and to set and realize goals for parent-supported student learning, the district will:

 

  1.  Provide activities that will educate parents regarding the intellectual and developmental needs of their children at all age levels.  This will include promoting cooperation between the district and other agencies or school/community groups (such as parent-teacher groups, Head Start, Parents as Teachers, etc. to furnish learning opportunities and disseminate information regarding parents’ skills and child/adolescent development.
  2.  Implement strategies to involve parents in the educational process, including:
    1. Keeping families informed of opportunities for involvement and encouraging participation in various programs.
    2. Providing access to educational resources for parents/families to use together with their children.
    3. Keeping families informed of the objectives of district educational programs as well as of their child’s participation and progress within these programs.
  3. Enable families to participate in the education of their children through a variety of roles by:
    1. Providing input into district policies.
    2. Volunteering time within the classrooms and school programs.
    3. Participating in the activities of the school.

 

Each school receiving Title I funds will jointly develop with and distribute to parents of children participating in the Title I program a written parental involvement policy agreed upon by such parents in accordance with the requirements of federal law:

 

  1.  The policy must be made available to the local community and updated periodically to meet the changing needs of parents and the school.
  2. The policy shall contain a school-parent compact that outlines how parents, the entire school staff and students will share the responsibility of student learning.
  3. The parent advisory committee will convene annually to review and revise the policy.
