County Support

The county Title I office provides assistance to schools in planning parental involvement activities.

Coordinate and Integrate Parent Involvement Programs

The county will coordinate parental involvement programs with Head Start, public preschool, and other programs and other activities to support parents in more fully participating in the education of their children.

School Improvement

Parents are invited to become members of the school improvement committee who develops the Title I plan at each school.  Contact your school’s principal if you are interested in becoming a member.

Annual Evaluation

The county conducts an annual evaluation of the parent involvement policy.  Questions asked of parents are several questions including feeling welcome in the school, having an opportunity to volunteer and participate, having input into their child’s education, etc.

Surveys are used to develop more effective parent involvement and to revise the parent involvement policy.

Educate Staff

The county will, with the assistance of its schools and parents, educate its teachers, service personnel, principals and other staff on how to reach out to, communicate with, and work with parents as equal partners and how to implement and coordinate parent programs and build ties between parents and schools.
