In order to implement the Board’s commitment to parent/family involvement in students’ education, the District has implemented an educational involvement plan with the following features:

  1. Regular two way communication between school and parents/families. Such communication will include but not be limited to scheduled parent visits to school, electronic communication, use of translators, parent volunteers, and other programs recommended by the Parent/Family Involvement Committee.
  2. Assist parents in developing positive, productive parenting skills, as well as positive productive means of interacting with District administrators and staff.
  3. Provide professional development opportunities for District staff to facilitate productive parent/school involvement in promoting education of District students.
  4. Involve parents in meaningful activities to enhance student learning.
  5. Enhance opportunities for parents/families to visit schools in a safe and open atmosphere.  Such opportunities will include, but are not limited to, identifying roles for parent volunteers, providing training for volunteers and provision of family activities at school.
  6. Affirmatively involve parents in school decisions which affect their children.
  7. Utilize community resources to promote and strengthen school programs, family practices, and student learning.
  8. The Plan will be reviewed annually with input from parents and staff.  Meeting agenda sign-in sheets and meeting minutes will be prepared and maintained by the District.
  9. Full opportunity for parent participation will be provided to all parents including, but not limited to, parents with limited English proficiency, parents with disabilities, and parents of migratory children.
  10. Conduct an annual evaluation of the policy to identify and resolve any barriers that would limit the involvement of parents.  (Examples of barriers include, but are not limited to, economically disadvantaged, limited English proficiency, limited literacy, disabled or are of any racial or minority background).
