Title I Parent Involvement

  • The active involvement of all parents of children in the Title I program is absolutely essential to the success of the program. To this end, the district will strive to implement the following measures:
    1. Parents will be informed of the Title I Program, their child’s participation and their right to be involved.
    2. A flexible number of meetings will be scheduled and if necessary, funds from the parent involvement section of the budget may be spent for such things as transportation, child care or home visits.
    3. Parents will be involved in the planning, review and improvement of the program through attendance at the meetings throughout the year, individual parent conferences, workshops, etc.
    4. Parents shall be provided with timely information concerning the program through literature, flyers, and letters sent home with their children.
    5. Parents will be given the results of their individual child’s assessment results.
    6. Parents shall be given a description of the program’s basic curriculum, forms of assessment, and performance levels which students are expected to meet.
    7. Timely responses will be given to suggestions made by parents in the meetings.
    8. Emphasis will be continuous on the necessity for shared parent-school responsibility for the successful performance of the children in the Title I Program.
    9.  Parents are informed that each department (Reading/Math) has resources that can be borrowed or consumable resources available for parents to use to further the progress of their child.
