Parent and Family Engagement

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires schools to engage parents of public and private school students in the development, implementation, and annual review of school programs for Title I students. ESSA further requires that "schools engage parents in regular, 2-way communication that is meaningful and pertains to academic learning and other school activities". The parent and family engagement requirements for schools and districts serving students through Title I are: 

  • District Parent and Family Engagement Policy 
  • School-Level Parent and Family Engagement Policy 
  • School-Parent Compact 
  • Annual Meeting for Title I parents 
  • Parent Notifications
