Title I Family Engagement

Title I Family Engagement


 Research shows that student achievement increases when families are involved in their child's education process. Some ways for families and caregivers to get involved are:

  • Make sure your child gets to school on time (whether virtual or brick & mortar).

  • Attend a Student Advisory Council (SAC) meeting at your child's school. This committee is open to all parents, teachers, and community members. Schools are looking for your input as parents. Please consider coming to your school's SAC meeting. Translators are available (when feasible) with advance request.

  • Join the District Parent Advisory Committee (DPAC) which will meet three times a year this year.  This group is similar to the SAC but is on a district level.  This group is open to parents of Title I Schools that attend their school's SAC meetings.  You will be able to share questions and ideas, review survey results and have input on Parent and Family Engagement plans.

  • Join the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at your child's school This group is open to all parents.

  • Read with or to your child.  For older students, ask what they are reading about.

  • Assist your child with homework.  Make sure your child has a space to do their homework.

  • Join the ESOL Parent Leadership Committee meetings (ESOL PLC) meets at our schools one or two times a year.  It's purpose is to check in on the needs of our ESOL families.  Russian and Spanish translators are generally in attendance for parents.  Check with your school's ESOL contact for meeting schedules.

  • Join the district ESOL Parent Leadership Committee which will meet three times this year.  This group is similar to the school level ESOL PLC, but it's on a district level.  Spanish and Russian translators will attend these meetings to helps parents whose first language is Spanish or Russian. 

  • Join Grandparents Parenting Again – Open to Grandparents that are now parenting their grandchildren.  This group addresses the unique circumstances grandparents raising and parenting their grandchildren possibly encounter and offers support and resources from guest speakers and other grandparents in similar situations.  Meetings will be held virtually at least for the first half of this school year and details on additional meetings will depend on the status and progression of the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • Attend your child's parent-teacher conferences and any guidance meetings.

  • Parents of students that attend a Title I school can use the Parent Resource Centers at the Title I schools.  They have manipulatives, literature, and games for check out that can help reinforce learning at home.

  • Talk to your child about their day.  Inquire about both social and academic issues.

  • Attend school events.  Check the school calendars and/or newsletters that come home for information about upcoming events.

  • Communicate with your child’s school.  We value your input!

We are a team!  Together with strong school–home relationships, we can help strengthen the academic success of our students!
