Parental Involvement means the participation of parents in meaningful, ongoing communication involving student learning and other school activities.
A written Title I parent involvement plan will be developed at the district level through consultation of parents and teachers.
All Title I parents, administrators and teachers will have an opportunity to give input regarding school and parent programs through an annual needs assessment/program evaluation survey. The survey will reflect the varying needs at each school site and will become a priority consideration for Title I district and school plan revisions.
Professional development activities will be provided and monthly staff meetings conducted. Title I will work with other disciplines to develop parental involvement activities across the curriculum.
Each Title I school site will provide the results of an annual parent involvement survey to the district. The results of this survey may require that information be provided to parents in their native language.
