Parent and Family Engagement

Welcome To The District Title I Webpage for Parent and Family Engagement

The purpose of Parent and Family Engagement under Title I, Part A is to promote active engagement among local educational agencies (LEA) administrators, school staff, parents, parent advocacy organizations, parental involvement liaisons, community leaders, and others working to improve student achievement and academic success. Family Engagement is defined as the participation of parents in regular two-way and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities:

Parents play an integral role in assisting their child’s learning.

Parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education at school.

Parents are full partners in their child’s education and are included, as appropriate, in decision making as well as being a part of the advisory committees to assist in the education of their child.

Parent Liaisons serve as a link between the schools and parents, relay the needs of one to the other; educate teachers and staff on how to communicate and work effectively with parents as equal partners.

From the desk of Ms. Starks:

Greetings  Bobcat families,

I’m excited to serve your families this school term. I have over 7 years of experience working with families. I have a passion for seeing others thrive, and being provided with resources to excel in every area of their life. My goal is to engage parents, teachers, students, and the community in the learning process by providing resources to help achieve student academic  success. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance .

*********************

From the desk of Mrs. Burden:

Happy Parents! Happy Community! Happy Schools! = “AWESOME RESULTS” for our students.

Without parents, families, and students, our schools would be nonexistent.  When parents, families, and schools work together, the entire community benefits.  I challenge all parents and families to take an active role in their child’s education by maintaining an open line of communication with the schools, attending family engagement meeting and workshops, attending extracurricular school functions, and volunteering.

We are the mirrors children see.  Let us build a partnership to ensure that our students are successful. Always remember, “Everyone is special and unique in their own special way”.
