This page includes Title I resources for family engagement, our detailed family handbook, and information on the USDA Nondiscrimination Statement.
Title I Resources
Parental involvement always has been a centerpiece of Title I and is defined by law as the participation of parents in regular, two-way and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities, including ensuring that parents:
• play an integral role in assisting their child’s learning;
• are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education at school;
• are full partners in their child’s education and are included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child
Please review our Title I resources below for important and timely information for our families. If you need help finding the information you need or have further questions, please contact Ms. Ramos by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
