Parental Involvement

The Board of Education recognizes the rights of parents/guardians to be fully informed of all information relevant to their children who participate in programs and projects funded by Title I. The District shall ensure parental involvement in these programs and projects by:

  1. a) Working with the district parent organization to involve parents in the development of the Title 1 Plan. If the plan is not satisfactory to the parents of children participating in Title 1 programs, the District will submit any parent comments to the State Education Department along with the District’s plan;
  2. b) Providing such support for parental involvement activities as required by law;
  3. c) Convening annual meetings at each building funded by Title 1 to which all parents/guardians of participating children shall be invited;
  4. d) Providing parents/guardians with regular reports on their children's progress;
  5. e) Providing opportunities for regular meetings of parents/guardians.

In addition to the above, the District shall, jointly and in agreement with parents of students receiving Title I services, establish expectations for parent involvement in Title I programs in accordance with Section 1118(a) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Similarly, each Title I school within the District shall establish building level school/parent involvement policies in accordance with Section 1118(b). Such school/parent policies shall include, where applicable, school-parent compacts outlining how parents, the entire school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership to help students achieve the state's high standards.

Procedures for Filing Complaints/Appeals

The District will disseminate free of charge to parents of children in Title I programs, and to appropriate private school officials or representatives, adequate information regarding the District's written complaint procedures for resolving issues of violation(s) of a Federal statute or regulation that applies to Title I, Part A programs. Procedures for filing complaints/appeals may be found in 8260R.
