Oakwood-Windsor Elementary School
TITLE I PARENT INVOLVEMENT POLICY
 
We at Oakwood-Windsor Elementary School believe that the responsibility for raising and educating children rests with parents, teachers, and community members.  The partnership of parents and teachers working together will help our children to reach their highest potential.  Moreover, we believe that those students whose parents are most involved in their child’s education will be students who are most successful in life.
 
Parent involvement at Oakwood-Windsor Elementary School will be fostered and encouraged in the following ways:
  • Involve parents in an organized, on-going, and timely way, in the planning review and improvements of programs.
  • Hold Annual Title I meeting to inform parents of their school’s participation in Title I and explain its requirements.
  • Provide information to parents in an efficient manner.
  • Provide parents with explanations of the school’s overall student achievement and their child’s individual student test results.
  • Provide parents with a description and explanation of the school’s curriculum, the assessments used to measure student progress, and the ability levels students are expected to meet. Accessibility can also be available through online resource links and teacher/district websites.
  • Offer regular meetings for parents as well as newsletters to make suggestions, share experiences, and participate in decisions relating to the education of their child.
  • Provide timely responses to parents’ suggestions.
  • Develop and distribute a School-Parent compact.
  • Provide parent involvement programs (such as Smart Night and school workshops) which provide materials and training to help parents work with educators as partners to monitor and improve their child’s achievement.
  • Ensure that information related to school and parent programs is sent to parents in a format and language that parents can understand.
  • Provide other support for parental involvement activities as parents may request.
  • Inform parents about their child’s academic and social progress in ways which may include, but are not limited to report cards, telephone calls, post cards, and parent-teacher conferences.
  • Provide parents opportunities to offer suggestions during Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) meetings.
  • Provide Title I information to families new to the school.
  • Encourage parents to become partners with the school in their child’s education by signing the School-Parent Compact, joining the PTO, initiating parent-teacher conferences, by volunteering, and by serving on school committees (School Improvement Council and Title I Committees).
  • Encourage parents to use the school media center through various means of communication.
