Campbell Court Family Involvement Plan
In order for students to achieve academic success, it is crucial for them to have support at school and at home.
In keeping with these beliefs, it is the intention of Campbell Court Elementary School to cultivate and support active parental involvement in student learning. Campbell Court Elementary School will involve parents in the following ways:
- Using School Messenger notices, notes home, emailed newsletters, and updated websites to keep families informed of opportunities for involvement and to encourage participation in various programs held during the school year.
- Providing access to educational resources and providing training for parents and families on strategies to help at home with math and reading
- Keeping families informed of the objectives of division educational programs as well as of their child’s participation and progress with these programs
Campbell Court Elementary will work to enable families to participate in the education of their children through a variety of roles. For example, family members may
- volunteer time within the classroom and school program
- provide input into division policies
- serve on the School Improvement team
We will work to include parents who do not speak English by providing information in a language understandable to parents via School Messenger and through flyers sent home.
In addition, for parents of students eligible for EL programs, Campbell Court Elementary School will inform such parents of how they can be active participants in assisting their children
- to learn English;
- to achieve at high levels in core academic subjects; and
- to meet the same challenging academic content and student academic achievement standards as all children are expected to meet.
Parental Involvement in Title I Plan
Campbell Court Elementary School encourages parents of children eligible to participate in Title I, Part A, programs to participate in the development of the school’s Title I plan. Parents may participate by attending an annual Title I meeting held at school. The annual meeting provides multiple opportunities for parents to participate in reviewing school data and school and division strategic goals. In addition, there will be a monthly PTO meeting with a portion of the agenda dedicated to Title I.
Parental Involvement in School Review and Improvement
Campbell Court Elementary School encourages parents of children eligible to participate in Title I, Part A, and LEP programs to participate in the process of school review and, if applicable, school improvement as implemented by 20 U.S.C. § 2316. Parents may participate by attending the annual Title I meeting and monthly PTO meetings. Each school includes parent representatives on the School Improvement team.
Campbell Court Elementary School which receives Title I, Part A, funds, MAY:
- involve parents in the development of training for teachers, principals, and other educators to improve the effectiveness of such training
- provide necessary literacy and training from Title I funds if the division has exhausted all other reasonable available sources of funding for such training
- pay reasonable and necessary expenses associated with local parental involvement activities, including transportation and child care costs, to enable parents to participate in school-related meetings and training sessions
- train parents to enhance the involvement of other parents
- arrange school meetings at a variety of times, or conduct in-home conferences between teachers or other educators who work directly with participating children and parents who are unable to attend such conferences at school in order to maximize parental involvement and participation
- adopt and implement model approaches to improving parental involvement
- select a parent to serve as a representative on the division parent advisory council to provide advice on all matters related to parental involvement in programs supported under this section
- develop appropriate roles for community-based organizations and businesses in parental involvement activities
