Parents are an important part of education. They are their child's first teacher. Title I assists parents in becoming more involved in their child's education as well as better prepared to support their child's education at home. There are many ways for parents to become more engaged. Title I supports parents through training, workshops, and informational meetings.
To the extent feasible and appropriate, schools that receive Title I must “coordinate and integrate parent involvement programs and activities with other Federal, State, and local programs, including public preschool programs, and conduct other activities, such as parent resource centers, that encourage and support parents in more fully participating in the education of their children.”
Parents and Family Engagement
Currently Title I, Part A defines parent involvement as the participation of parents in regular, two-way and meaningful communications with school staff that involves the student, addresses learning and engages the family in school activities.
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) refers to this as Parent and Family Engagement starting in 2017-18.
Parent involvement helps to promote academic success! The more involved you are, the more likely your child will give his or her best effort and be successful. We encourage you to make ordinary moments extraordinary by connecting with your children during their daily routines of life. Parents reinforce the message that education is important.
Connecting with children does not require additional resources of time or money. It only takes a minute to make eye contact, to ask a question on the drive to school, while getting groceries, making dinner, doing laundry, running to the bank or reading a bedtime story.You are your child’s first teacher.
If we can assist you in any way, do not hesitate to contact us. When families, schools, and communities work together in partnership, students learn that school is important.
