Parental involvement contributes to the achievement of academic standards by students participating in Title I programs. The Board views the education of students as a cooperative effort among the school, parent(s)/guardian(s) and community. 

    An annual meeting of parent(s)/guardian(s) of participating Title I students shall be held to explain the goals and purposes of the Title I Program. Parent(s)/Guardian(s) shall be given the opportunity to participate in the design, development, operation, and reflection of the program. Parent(s)/Guardian(s) shall be encouraged to participate in planning activities, to offer suggestions, and to ask questions regarding policies and programs.

    In addition to the required annual meeting, additional parent/guardian meetings shall be held at various times of the day and evening. At these meetings, parent(s)/guardian(s) shall be provided information about programs provided under Title I, descriptions and explanations of the curriculum in use, the forms of academic assessment used to measure student progress, and the proficiency levels students are expected to meet, opportunities to formulate suggestions and to participate, as appropriate, in decisions relating to the education of their children, and opportunities to submit parent/guardian comments about the program to the District and or building level.
