Title I Parent Information

  • Title I Parental Involvement

    School Level Plan


    Walt Disney Elementary School recognizes that parents play an integral role in helping their children achieve high academic standards. When parents participate in school activities and decision-making about their children’s education, children achieve at higher levels. We encourage parents to be actively involved in their child's education and to become full partners in school educational planning and operations. Consistent with the parent involvement goals of Title I, Part A of the Federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 {NCLB):

    1. The Building Principal and appropriate staff shall convene an annual meeting, at a convenient time, to inform parents of the school's participation in Title I funded programs, and to explain Title I requirements and the right of the parents to be involved. All parents of children participating in a Title I program will be invited to the meeting.

       

    2. The school staff shall offer parents additional opportunities to meet and otherwise participate in their child's education. These meetings shall be held at flexible times (e.g., morning or evening) so that as many parents as possible are able to attend.

       

    3. The school will provide parents with timely information about Title I funded programs including Academic Intervention Services. School staff will also describe and explain the curriculum in use at the school, the types of academic assessment that will be used to measure student progress and the proficiency levels the students are expected to meet. Parents may also request regular meetings with school staff to make suggestions and to participate, as appropriate, in decisions relating to the education of their child. The school will respond to any such suggestions as soon as practical.

       

    4. The school staff shall involve parents, in an organized, ongoing, and timely way, in the planning, review, and improvement of Title I funded programs, including the planning, review, and improvement of the school's parental involvement plan and the expenditure of funds available for parental involvement activities.
