6. Parent and Family Engagement

Research continues to demonstrate that successful schools have significant and sustained levels of parent and family engagement, such as family literacy services. Therefore, it is important that schoolwide plans contain strategies to involve parents, especially in helping their children do well in school. In addition, parents must be involved in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the schoolwide program. Title I schoolwide schools must have parent involvement policies and plans as required for all Title I schools. In addition, the plan must describe how the school will provide individual student assessment results, including the interpretation those results, to the parents of a child who participates in the assessment.

Evidence:  Parent and family engagement; community involvement; compact development and implementation; parent and family engagement policy and other required activities to involve parents and families.

 

  1. Describe how parents and families will be involved in the design, implementation, and annual evaluation of the schoolwide program. Note that if the evaluation results or individual comments show that the schoolwide plan is not satisfactory to parents and/or families, the school is required to submit these comments to the district.

     

    Parents are included in devising the parental involvement policy for the school, planning the parental involvement calendar, and actively participating on the school improvement team.  In addition, an evaluation (Title I NCLB Parental Quarterly Evaluation) is sent home for parents to assess the Title I program at Schoolfield Elementary. Information from the evaluation will be used to assist in devising the plans.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  2. Describe how parents and families will receive timely information about the Title I program, how they will be informed of the curriculum, assessments and proficiency levels students are expected to meet and how they will be encouraged to participate in decision making opportunities about their child’s education.

     

     

    Schoolfield Elementary Parental Involvement Calendar is available on the school’s website and updated regularly.  There is a Title I Focus at each PTA where grade level teams inform and engage parents about the curriculum, assessments, and how to help their child achieve academic success. The Title I annual meeting and PTA meeting will be held in October , 2019. The focus of the meeting will be “Parents’ Right to Know.”  Parents will receive information through Class DOJO, School Messenger, Flyers, and telephone calls.

     

     

     

     

     

     

  3. List specific training activities and decision-making opportunities for parents and families. (Include meeting dates for the planning, implementation and evaluation of the Parent and Family Engagement Policy, compacts and school plans.)

Mystery Reader will be every Friday by parent volunteers in grades K-5.

  1. Describe strategies that will be used to increase parent and family engagement including, if appropriate, family literacy services, that help parents to work with their children to improve their children’s achievement. In addition, consider opportunities to help parents work with their children to decrease discipline infractions. Has the overuse of discipline practices impacted students’ achievement? How can you provide support to parents to address the academic, emotional, and social needs of students (VTSS)?

     

    Administrators and Title I Reading Specialists will review the Parents Rights to Know PowerPoint at the PTA meeting in October 2019.  Within that presentation, parents will provided information in regards to the Parent Resource Center (Langston Campus) where resources and tutoring are provided for students as well as parents who need assistance with helping their child with homework or preparing for their GED.  The Title I team will review the Parental Involvement Policy with parents and parents were instrumental in planning the Title I Calendar of events for the year.  In addition, we have four PAC (Parent Advisory Committee) meetings planned throughout the year to maintain ongoing communication and involvement with parents and the school community. Parents will be informed of the parental involvement calendar.

    Family Literacy Nights are held two times each year to involve parents in literacy activities with their child.

    Website has information on Title I, Parental Involvement, PAC meetings and scheduled events.

    A focus on bullying will support parents and students who are bullying and who are being bullied.

     

     

  2. Describe how the school will provide individual student academic assessment results, including an interpretation of those results, to the parents of students who have taken the SOLs.

     

    Grade level teams will provide an assessment letter to parents.  The letter consists of an explanation of assessments the students have taken and a description of the results, indicating whether the students are reading below, on, or above grade level (Assessment results included:  SOLs, PALS, MAP, Accelerated Reader).

    Parent teacher conferences are scheduled on an ongoing basis when needed to discuss students’ progress. Weekly progress reports go home to parents every Wednesday. SOL letters were sent home describing scores (Fail, Proficient and Advanced ) to parents. 2nd grade sent NNAT testing results home.

     

     

  3. What, if any, are the budget implications?Address budget implications in the plan, especially if new initiatives will be implemented for 2019-2020.

 

Money will be used for parent involvement and engagement. Please see the needs assessment.
