Parent and Family Engagement
Title I School wide
Grades Kdg - 4
Foyil Public Schools believes that the parent and school are a team. In our Title I program we will strive to include the parent in all aspects of the child’s learning experience. We want our children that are served in the Title I program to have every opportunity possible to learn not only at school but also at home.
I. Convene an annual meeting:
Parents will be informed of an annual Title I meeting that will present the Title I program and answer any questions that the parent may have.
- A notice will be sent home with the student as a way of notification of the meeting. A notice will also be placed on our school website in the Title I section.
- The meeting will be held on a parent conference night during the first 9 weeks. This will enable the parent to not only meet with the Title I teacher but also the classroom teacher.
- Parents will sign in and if possible leave phone information and email information as they come to meet and discuss the program with the Title I Teacher. This will aid the Title I teacher with future parental contacts.
- A “What Is Title One ” information sheet will be sent with each child being served in the Title I program. This is in very easy to read vocabulary and if needed will be transcribed into the needed language.
II. Flexible number of meetings:
Parent conferences are held throughout the year and dates will be placed on the school website and mar-key. Notices of conferences from their classroom teacher will also have letters sent home to advise parents of times and dates. If a parent cannot attend, individual appointments will be made available upon the parent’s request.
III. Involving parents in an organized, ongoing, and timely way:
- Parent survey:
A parent survey will be sent home at the end of each year to determine the success of the services provided to the child. A space on the form is made available for the parent to voice improvements, concerns, or any comments they deem needed on the survey.
- School-Parent compact or contract:
All students served will be given a teacher-parent-school contract or compact. This contract or compact will be signed by the Title I teacher, principal, parent, and student. It will be kept filed in the Title I classroom.
- On going communication with the parent
This is the most important part of the site Title I program. Open communication is what our goal is in this site program. Emails, phone calls, notes and letters, and appointments will be used as often as possible.
IV. Provide parents with timely information:
Students who are identified as being at risk either by end of the year exit exams, teacher referrals, or parent concerns will be referred to the Title I department for further evaluation. The Title I teacher will test the students who are at risk in math or reading with an appropriate test. The Title I teacher will make available and discuss with the parent and classroom teacher the findings of the test results and offer a plan to assist the student in acquiring the necessary skills to be successful. Testing will be conducted at least 2 times a year. Progress monitoring will be done throughout the year depending upon the subject and grade level.
