    Board Policy

    Parent Involvement

    BP 6020


    Instruction

    The Governing Board recognizes that parents/guardians are their children's first and most

    influential teachers and that continued parental involvement in the education of children

    contributes greatly to student achievement and a positive school environment.

    The Superintendent or designee shall work with staff and parents/guardians to develop

    meaningful opportunities at all grade levels for parents/guardians to be involved in district and

    school activities; advisory, decision-making, and advocacy roles; and activities to support

    learning at home.

     

    Parents/guardians shall be notified of their rights to be informed about and to participate in their

    children's education and of the opportunities available to them to do so.

    The Superintendent or designee shall regularly evaluate and report to the Board on the

    effectiveness of the district's parent involvement efforts, including, but not limited to, input from

    parents/guardians and school staff on the adequacy of parent involvement opportunities and

    barriers that may inhibit parent/guardian participation.

     

    Title I Schools

    Each year the Superintendent or designee shall identify specific objectives of the district's parent

    involvement program for schools that receive Title I funding. He/she shall ensure that parents/

    guardians are consulted and participate in the planning, design, implementation, and evaluation

    of the parent involvement program.

     

    The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that the district's parent involvement strategies are

    jointly developed with and agreed upon by parents/guardians of students participating in Title I

    programs. Those strategies shall establish expectations for parent involvement and describe how

    the district will carry out each activity.

     

    The Superintendent or designee shall consult with parents/guardians of participating students in

    the planning and implementation of parent involvement programs, activities, and regulations.

    He/she also shall involve parents/guardians of participating students in decisions regarding how

    the district's Title I funds will be allotted for parent involvement activities.

     

    The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that each school receiving Title I funds develops a

    school-level parent involvement policy.

     

    Non-Title I Schools

    The Superintendent or designee shall develop and implement strategies applicable to each school

    that does not receive federal Title I funds to encourage the involvement and support of parents/

    guardians in the education of their children.
