Parental Involvement

 Parental Involvement

Parental involvement is an integral part of the Title I program. Parents are encouraged to become partners in helping their children achieve and become actively involved in all aspects of the process of the Title I program, from the writing of the plan to its implementation and evaluation. 

A strong connection between the home and the school is a key element in student success. Materials, strategies, and help from teachers are available to parents of students receiving Title I services. Opportunities for active parent participation should include, but not be limited to, Parent Workshops, School-Parent Compact, School Improvement / Title I Planning Team, conferences, newsletters and more.

The Every Student Succeeds Act legislation requires schools to utilize a portion of their Title I funds to support parent involvement. Parents should contact Kalan S. Rogers with any comments or suggestions regarding the school’s parent involvement expenditures.


Parent’s Right to Know

In compliance with the requirements of the Every Students Succeeds Act, parents may request the following information:
1. Whether the student’s teacher:

  • has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
