Title I Parent Involvement Policy
A strong partnership between the school and home is essential if a quality educational program is to be provided to all students. The Caesar Rodney School District (District) is dedicated to the philosophy that parent involvement is integral to the success of each child. The District and its schools will work with parents to establish regular, two-way meaningful communication to ensure that:
- Parents play an integral role in assisting their child’s learning;
- Parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education at school; and
- Parents 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
Parent involvement may be defined as, but is not limited to, parenting, communicating, learning and home, volunteering, decision-making, and collaborating with the community.
The District will continue to build its capacity for strong parental involvement. The District will support a partnership between its schools, parent/ caregivers, and the community to improve student academic achievement and school performance.
The Caesar Rodney School District agrees to implement the following statutory requirements:
- The District will put into operation programs, activities and procedures for the involvement of parents in all of its school with Title I, Part A programs, consistent with section 1118 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). Those programs, activities and procedures will be planned and operated with meaningful consultation with parents of participating children. These programs will provide assistance to parents, as appropriate, in understanding topics such as the following:
- The State’s academic content standards,
- The District’s curriculum that aligns with the content standards,
- The State’s and District’s academic assessments
- How to monitor their child’s progress, and
- Other topics related to helping parents work with their children to improve their children’s academic achievement, such as literacy training and using technology, or other topics as parents may request.
