OPPORTUNITIES FOR PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT
Some opportunities for parental involvement include:
During this school year, you will have an opportunity to attend parent workshops that will be offered at flexible times. Please look for information throughout the year regarding these workshops.
If you are looking for additional resources to assist your student at home, please visit our school Parent Resource Center located in room 601. Open during school hours, parents can browse through our assortment of games, manipulatives, brochures, pamphlets and handouts to find wonderful resources to work with your child at home. Please feel free to contact us any time if you need support or information on how to improve your child's academic performance in school. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Every year, students, parents and school staff sign a compact or agreement. This compact outlines how parents, the entire school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership to help children achieve the State’s high standards. This compact is given out at the beginning of each school year.
PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT POLICY
The purpose of the school parental involvement policy is to ensure that strong strategies are in place to: 1) build the capacity to involve parents in an effective partnership with the school; 2) share and support high student academic achievement. The school and parents must jointly develop and agree on the policy. It is revised every year to meet the changing needs of parents. Finally, the policy is distributed to parents.
The school district also has a school parental involvement policy. It is also revised every year. A copy of this document is distributed to parents as well. You may view the policy in PDF form by clicking the link on this page.
At the beginning and end of the school year, schools send out a parent questionnaire. The results of this survey are used to review the effectiveness of parent activities. Feedback from these surveys is very important. The school parental involvement policy and school activities are developed from feedback parents give on these surveys.
