Title I Parent and Family Engagement Policy

Revised February 2021

The board of education recognizes the value of family engagement in a child’s academic success
and believes that the education of children is an ongoing cooperative partnership between the
home and the school. Parents and other family members are their children’s first teachers;
therefore, the continued involvement of parents and family members in the educational process is
most important in fostering and improving educational achievement. School system officials
shall strive to support parents and provide parents and family members with meaningful
opportunities to become involved in the programs offered by the Title I schools. The board
encourages parents and family members to participate in the design and implementation of the
programs and activities in order to increase the effectiveness of the school system’s Title I
program in helping students meet state and local achievement standards.

For the purposes of this policy, the term “parent and family engagement” means the
participation of parents, guardians, and other family members in regular, two-way, and
meaningful communication involving student learning and other school activities,
including ensuring the following:
1. that parents and family members play an integral role in assisting their child’s
2. that parents and family members are encouraged to be actively involved in their
child’s education at school;
3. that parents are full partners in their child’s education and parents and family
members are included, as appropriate, in decision making and on advisory
committees to assist in the education of their child; and
4. that the school system utilizes activities to support parent and family engagement
in the Title I programs.
