Title 1 Parent Policy         

As a parent/guardian, you play an important role in your child’s education. Throughout the year your child’s school will have opportunities for you to become involved. We suggest you become a member of the PTO, join a family involvement workshop, or contact the school for specific activities.

There will be exhilarating learning experiences with academics, the arts and sports. Classrooms will offer interesting activities to which you will be invited. Please contact your child’s school anytime to inquire about how you can get involved in your school community, visit the school’s website to review the Title One Parent Involvement Policy, and read the district’s Parent Involvement Policy

Please get involved in your child’s education, attend meetings and share your thoughts, concerns and ideas.
