Title I Parent Involvement Expectations

 

At Moss Street, we know that the spirit of community in our school is what makes us successful.  The caring and supportive relationships between teachers, students, parents, and members of our community provide us with the foundation necessary to achieve academic excellence.  We are proud to be a Title I school and to participate in this federally funded program that provides support and resources to enrich the education of our students.

 

Our Title I Parent Involvement Policy is designed to inform and involve the families of our students.  This policy will be documented in our Title I Parent Handbook and is also available on our school website.  In order to strengthen the partnerships between school, home, and the community, we pledge to do the following:

 

  • Provide timely information to parents using:

  • School Newsletters

  • Student Planner and Handbook

  • School/Home Folders

  • Conferences, telephone calls, letters home, and newspaper articles

  • Progress Reports/Report Cards

  • Alert Now telephone messaging system

  • Teacher Web pages

  • School Marquee

  • NC School Report Card

 

  • Involve parents in the planning, review, and improvement of the school’s Title I program:

  • Include parent representation on the School Leadership and Improvement Team

  • Post the minutes from meetings of the School Leadership and Improvement Team and the Parent-Teacher Organization on the school’s web page

  • Encourage all parents to provide feedback on Title I Parent surveys

  • Share the School Improvement Plan and the Title I Plan on the school’s web page

 

  • Expect every parent to attend at least one parent/teacher conference during the fall and spring semester and offer flexible meeting times to encourage parent attendance.  

 

  • Host students and their families at an Open House and Title I Annual Meeting at the beginning of each school year and at periodic Parent Teacher Association and Title I meetings throughout each school year.  

 

  • Offer teacher and parent workshops, at least 3 times a year, to meet the educational needs of our school community and provide resources to help our students be successful.

 

  • Arrange family events at flexible times to encourage social interaction within our school community with activities designed to engage children and allow greater parent participation.  

 

  • Hold grade level meetings to increase parent understanding of the NC State Curriculum Standards, the NC Testing program, and grade level expectations.

 

  • Serve as a liaison between the RCS Parent Resource Center and families to expand their access to resources and services beneficial to the academic success of students.  

 

  • Utilize the services of the RCS Migrant Education division, ESL and EC teachers, school support personnel, and community resources to better serve students with disabilities and limited English proficiency.  

 

  • Sponsor Teacher/Student/Parent Compacts to foster partnerships between school and home and establish shared responsibility for the learning and success of students.  

 

  • Create opportunities for parents to volunteer at school, visit their children’s classes, attend school events, and participate in the educational experience of our students.

Title I Schools – Working Together to Make a Difference

 

Purpose of Title I 

 

Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, provides financial assistance to school districts and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. There are many components of Title I and one that we believe makes a significant difference is parental involvement. By parent, we are referring to a natural parent, a legal guardian or other person responsible for the child’s welfare. 

 

Making a Difference 

 

Parental involvement has always been a centerpiece of Title I. Parental involvement is defined as the participation of parents in regular, two–way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities, ensuring: 

 

✜ that parents play an integral role in assisting their child’s learning; 

 

✜ that parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education at school; 

 

✜ that parents 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 

 

Families have a significant influence on their child’s achievement in school and in life. When we take a team approach by including schools, families, and community groups to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more. Studies have found that students with involved parents, no matter what their income or background, are more likely to: 

 

✜ earn high grades and test scores, and enroll in higher–level programs; 

 

✜ pass their classes, earn credits, and be promoted; 

 

✜ attend school regularly; and 

 

✜ graduate and go on to postsecondary education. 

 

Through Title I programming, we offer resources for parents in supporting student learning at both the district and school level. Please continue to work with your child’s school to support his/her needs. In addition, we offer services through our Parent Resource Centers. Contact information for these centers is located below. We hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to be the key to your child’s success.
