MES Parent Involvement Policy
Parental Involvement Policy:

A strong connection between the home and the school is a key element in student success. Materials, strategies, and help from teachers are available to all parents within a Title I school.
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act legislation requires schools to utilize a portion of their Title I funds to support parent involvement.  Parents should contact the school principal, Angie White,  with any comments or suggestions regarding the school’s parent involvement expenditures. The school-parent compact outlines how parents, the entire school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the way in which the school and parents will build and develop partnerships.

Parental involvement is an important means of increasing the effectiveness of a Title I program. The McCormick County School District and McCormick Elementary School, understands this and has established the following policies to encourage and ensure parental support for its Title I program:
Opportunities for Visitation:
 Annual Meet and Greet (Virtual options available when needed)
 Other “parent nights” hosted by the schools
 Parent-Teacher conferences
 Open House
 Report card pick-up days
Parent University Opportunities for Growth

Although there are specified times for visitation, parents are welcome in the school at any time to see classes in operation. Other meeting places and times will be scheduled as requested by parents. Even during unsafe times such as the pandemic, we will provide virtual options for visitation and meetings.
Opportunities for parental input for the planning, design, and implementation of the Title I program:
 There will be various opportunities for recommendations concerning the planning and design of the Title I program for the succeeding project year.
 Opportunities for recommendations for the implementation of the Title I project will be given at the annual meeting each year.
 Parents are encouraged to make suggestions/recommendations for the program.
 Any recommendations or concerns raised by parents will be addressed by the Title I Coordinator and/or school administration.
