    Purpose of Title I                                                   

    Title I was enacted to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and assessments. This can be accomplished by meeting the educational needs of low-achieving children, closing the achievement gap between high- and low-performing children, high standards for all students, enriched and accelerated instruction, decentralized decision making, improved accountability, high quality professional development, coordination and integration of services, expanded family involvement, extended learning time, and early intervention.

     

    Purpose of Parent Involvement

    Positive parental involvement is essential to achieve maximum social, emotional, and academic growth. East Elementary Parent Involvement Plan should include participation of parents in ongoing and meaningful communication about student academic learning and other school activities, ensuring that parents:

    ·      Play an integral role in assisting their child’s learning;

    ·      Are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education at school;

    ·      Are full partners in their child’s education and are included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child; and

    ·      Are notified of the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) status of their child’s building.

     

    Title I Parent Committee

    This committee will consist of teachers and parents that will meet a minimum of four times throughout the school year. Items to be discussed will be: performance of students in the area of Communication Arts and Mathematics, review parent involvement plan, review and update the school-parent compact, plan parent involvement activities (fall and spring), evaluate activities, discuss results of parent evaluations, and address strengths and weaknesses of program and needs assessment information.

     

    Strategies for Communication (Policy Involvement)

    East Elementary will provide parents with information and collect information by:

    a.    Holding an annual fall meeting to inform parents of their school’s participation in Title I, explain requirements, and explain parents’ right to be involved;
