2. Davidson Elementary School will offer a number of meetings at various times and, if necessary, use Title I funds to provide transportation, child care, or home visits as these services relate to Title I parental involvement.

Davidson Elementary will schedule meetings to be held at different times to better accommodate parents.  Our school will hold the annual Title I meeting for parents to inform them about the school’s participation in the Title I program and review the parent school compact with them.  Our school will also hold a Curriculum Night where parents can learn more about the plan for their children academically and about the academic standards.  Curriculum Night will have two different sessions giving parents the opportunity to go to more than one child’s orientation and to also meet the Encore Staff. Teachers will hold parent teacher conferences individually with the parents of the students in their classrooms.  Parents will be given a summary of the student’s current academic level and an explanation of the interventions that teachers are using to assist the child in reaching academic goals.  Parents will be asked to engage in discussion of how they can support these efforts.  Parents will also be given suggestions for coordinating school-parent efforts and explanations of homework, grading procedures, and accessibility of technology resources for use at home.

 

3. Davidson Elementary School will involve parents in an organized, ongoing, and timely way, in the planning, review, and improvement of programs under Title I, including the school parental involvement plan and the development of the school wide plan.

Parents will be invited and encouraged to become active members of the PTA. At the PTA meetings parents will be provided information regarding the school’s Title I allocation (inclusive of professional development and parent involvement allotments). Parents will be allowed to provide input in the development and decision-making process of all Title I activities related to the school. An annual evaluation will be conducted using surveys completed by parents, staff, and students. The results will be analyzed to evaluate the effectiveness of the school’s parent involvement program.

 

4. Davidson Elementary School will provide parents of participating children:

  • timely information about Title I programs
  • an interpretation of the school’s annual performance report
  • an explanation of the curriculum in use at the school, the forms of assessment used to measure student progress, and the proficiency levels students are expected to meet

 

Davidson Elementary will provide information about Title I programs in a timely manner, using various methods of communication (newsletter, website, meetings, School Messenger). Information about Title I programs, academic programs, (Supplemental Educational Services tutoring), Missouri learning, Grade Level Expectations, and forms of academic assessment will be shared with parents during Orientation/Title I Information Meeting, parent conferences, and any other time a parent requests such information. Classroom teachers will explain and discuss the school’s curriculum, the Missouri Learning Standards and types of assessments used to measure student progress during Orientation. Title I teachers and administration will explain Title I programs and opportunities at the Title I Informational Meeting. Parents will be given the opportunity to ask questions to help in their understanding of all items discussed at the annual Title I Informational Meeting. Parents will be informed of Supplemental Educational Services (SES) tutoring options during Orientation. MAP/Assessment data will be shared along with status of AYP through the school newsletter, MAP results being sent home to parents and on the school website.

 

5.  If requested by parents, Davidson Elementary School will provide regular meetings to formulate suggestions and to participate, when appropriate, in decisions relating to the education of their children.

The team may consist of the guardian of the student, teacher, classroom principal, school counselor, reading teacher, ELL teacher, and/or the resource educator.

 

6. Davidson Elementary School will provide timely responses to the suggestions made by parents that have been offered in the meetings.

Staff will implement ideas from the meetings in a timely manner.  Staff will communicate with parents about the implementation of ideas and strategies. 

 

7.  Davidson Elementary School will include comments from parents of participating children who find any aspect of the school wide plan unsatisfactory when it is submitted to the school district.

A parent representative will be asked to review and collaborate with school representatives to adjust any part of the plan that parents are not in complete agreement.  This will be revisited annually.

 

 

8.  Davidson Elementary School will provide assistance to participating parents with such topics as:

  • understanding the MO Learning Standards, the MAP test and local assessments
  • understanding how to monitor a child’s progress
  • knowing how to work with teachers to improve the performance of their child

During fall conferences classroom teachers will discuss student progress towards mastery of the MO Learning Standards, goal setting, and student behavior. Parents will be given assessment scores from district assessment.  .

 

9.  Davidson Elementary School will provide parents the training and materials necessary to improve their child’s achievement, such as literacy training and using technology, as appropriate.

This will be executed throughout the year during our Family Involvement events.

 

10. Davidson Elementary School will educate, with parental assistance, all school personnel in valuing parent contributions, communicating and working with parents as equal partners, implementing and coordinating parent programs, and building ties between home and school.

Adoption

This School Parental Involvement Plan has been developed jointly with, and in agreement with, parents of children participating in Title I, Part A programs, as evidenced by the Annual Public Title I meeting and annual parent survey conducted to evaluate effectiveness.

This policy was adopted by the school and will be in effect during the 2016-2017 school year. The school will make this plan available to all parents of participating Title I, Part A children.
