As part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of the federal and state Title I programs, each school district must publish, share and maintain its parent involvement policies with parents of students that participate in the local Title I reading program.
A strong partnership between the school and home is essential if a quality educational program is to be provided to all students. All staff of Ventura Park believes that through home, school, and community involvement, we can create a positive environment conducive for parents to be actively involved in their child’s education.
Criteria: Inform the parents about criteria for student selection, student progress, and their child’s individual program.
- Inform parents that all students are eligible to receive Title I services, but those students who are performing significantly below grade level in reading may be given supplemental instruction.
- Explain that the assessment procedure, and each child’s performance on that assessment, may or may not identify him/her for Title I support.
- Share information about the child’s progress during regular scheduled conferences.
Suggestions/Recommendations: Parents will be given the opportunity to make suggestions about the Title I program during parent engagement events including:
- Annual Title I Meeting
- Family Engagement Events
- Fall/Spring Conferences
If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact your child’s classroom teacher, the Title I teacher, or the principal.
This parent involvement policy is reviewed annually for content and effectiveness by our Site Council. If necessary, revisions are made based on the information received from parent input.
