Parent Involvement Policy

Title I Section 1118

 

Highland Elementary recognizes the importance of parent involvement in their students’ education.  To encourage that involvement, our school will provide the following:

 

1        An annual meeting to explain the Title I program and inform parents of 

          their right to be involved in the program.

2        Scheduling of a flexible number of meetings to meet the needs of

          working families.

3        Involve parents for the purpose of improving academic achievement in

          planning, reviewing, and improving the Title I program at Highland.

4        Information about the Title I programs, curriculum and student

          assessments and proficiency levels students are expected to meet.

5        Opportunities for parents to provide input and will respond to

          suggestions.
