GENERAL ADMINISTRATION Policy 1405
Parent/Family Involvement in Education
The Board of Education recognizes the positive effects of parents/families’ involvement in the education of their children. The Board is committed to strong parent/family involvement in working collaboratively with district staff as knowledgeable partners in educating district students. In order to implement the Board’s commitment to parent/family involvement in education, the Superintendent will appoint a committee of parents, staff, and community representatives to serve as the district’s Parent Involvement Committee. The Committee’s responsibilities will include recommendations for program development, parent/staff training and program evaluation. The Committee will identify barriers to greater parent participation in Title I activities with attention to parents of students with disabilities, those who are economically disadvantaged, have limited English proficiency, have limited literacy, or are of any racial or ethnic minority background. Program evaluation reports will be prepared and submitted to the Superintendent annually by June 1.
