Reagan Elementary

Title 1 Campus Parental Involvement Policy

 

Purpose

We at Reagan Elementary believe every child should have the opportunity to attain his/her full potential.  Therefore, we will maximize our resources to enable each child to become a successful learner.  A key resource is its people:  administrators, teachers, school staff, parents, and community members.  We will work together to establish effective partnerships because togethereveryone achieves more.  School and home must work together to realize higher student achievement.  Ongoing, two-way, meaningful communication will occur to facilitate mutual understanding and to stimulate student success.

We at Reagan Elementary will provide to all parents the grade level goals for its students.  We will also publish the STAAR testing schedule and assessment goals.  Those students who need extra assistance will have access to programs that will help them reach these goals.

We will make every effort to include parents in the development, evaluation, and revision of the Title I Program and the Parent Involvement Policy.  The school-parent compact will describe the responsibilities of key stakeholders and useful channels of communication.  The goal of our parental involvement program is student success.

 

Developing the Policy and Involving Parents in the Schoolwide Plan

An advisory committee will be formed consisting of two to four parents, two community members, nine teachers and staff, and three principals or administrators to develop and revise the Reagan Elementary Parent Involvement Policy.  The need for volunteers to serve on this committee will bepublicized and then volunteers will be selected.  The parent volunteers will represent the diversity of the student population, and one or more parents on the advisory committee will have children participating in a Title I program.  The advisory committee will convene at a time and place convenient to all its members.

Additionally, we at Reagan Elementary understand that the parental involvement policy is a part of the larger district and campus improvement plans.  The advisory committee will also provide input regarding the development and revision of the district and/or campus improvement plan.

 

Building Capacity  

We value the partnership of the parents in their children’s education.  There are many ways parents can make significant contributions to student success both at home and by volunteering at the school.  Student achievement is the result of effective home-school-community partnerships.  Throughout the course of the year, the following capacity-building opportunities will be offered (these events are examples only, and should not be considered as all-inclusive):

· Grade level meetings;

· Parent/teacher conferences;

· ARD and RtI meetings;

· Family events such as Holiday of Learning and Parents and Pastries;

· LPAC meetings;

· Campus site-base meetings.

 

Annual Meeting

Reagan Elementary will hold an annual meeting during the first six weeks of the new school year for all parents.  At that meeting the Title I program will be described, the Parental Involvement Policy will be distributed and reviewed, and opportunities for parental participation will be explained.  Parent volunteers will be recruited to serve on the campus Site-based Decision Making, or SBDM, Team.  A translator will be present at the meeting.  Parents will be informed about the meeting in the campus newsletter, and notices will be sent home with students.

Since the goal of Reagan Elementary is student success, the expectations for school performance, individual student assessments, and grade level curriculum will be provided in a format parents can understand. 

Parents will be advised that the effectiveness of the Parental Involvement Program will be evaluated annually and the policy will be revised to meet the needs of the students, school, parents, and community.

 

Parent School Compacts

The district Title 1 Parent Involvement Advisory Committee will meet annually to develop, review, and revise a school-parent compact.  The compact will identify the responsibilities of the staff to provide high-level curriculum and instruction and the expectations of the parents to provide support in their children’s learning.  The compact will address the best ways to maintain positive, timely communication between school and home.  The compacts will be available to all parents and families in the student handbook and on the school website.

 

Evaluation

We at Reagan Elementary will work with our SBDM Team to evaluate the effectiveness of the Parental Involvement Program.  Surveys, classroom observation, assessment data, and other resources will be used to identify needs and develop revised strategies for student success.  Parental input will be sought.  Revisions to the Title I Program and the Parental Involvement Policy will be developed and agreed upon with parent input and will be communicated to the parents in the district.

 

Concluding Statement

We at Reagan Elementary are committed to the success of our students.  We will work together with parents to monitor the effectiveness of our Parental Involvement and Title I Programs and to provide excellence in education.  This policy will be promoted by campus administrators, teachers, and other school staff as we seek active participation by our parents.
