Revised February 2, 2017

Statement of Purpose

            A strong partnership between the school and home is essential if a quality educational program is to be provided to all students. Electra Elementary actively recruits parents as partners for our student’s success. The parent involvement policy is reviewed and amended during a meeting of the Parent Involvement Committee and will be distributed at the beginning of each school year and copies are also available in the Parent Center.

            The campus curriculum is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) which have been developed by the Texas Educational Agency. All students are expected to work toward mastery of the TEKS objectives. We also are improving our curriculum with the use of the Nancy Larson Science Program in Kindergarten – 4th grade, using Text books we have for Math, Reading, and Social Studies, along with other supplemental materials in each of these subjects. Our Campus recognizes that some students will need extra assistance to achieve their full potential. Extra assistance is available to all students through Title I program and various other educational services provided by the campus including tutoring.

            Electra Elementary School intends to include parents in all aspects of the school program. Students will be given every opportunity for success through the development and enhancement of the home/school partnership.

Parent Involvement in Policy Development

            Electra Elementary Parent Involvement Committee is comprised of parents, administrators and other staff members. The team will meet 3 times during the year to discuss the design and implementation of the Parent Involvement Policy as well as other issues that affect the elementary campus.

            Electra Elementary will actively recruit volunteers through various avenues of publicity. Membership will produce a diverse group of stakeholders who represent an array of student populations served by the campus.

            Meetings will be planned at convenient times for all concerned parties. If a translator is needed, the campus will arrange for one to be present.

 

 

 

Parent Involvement Activities to Improve Student Academic Achievement and Performance

            One of the primary functions of the Parent Involvement Committee is to identify ways that Electra Elementary can plan and implement effective parent involvement programs. The campus will also promote and encourage staff development for staff members on establishing effective relationships with parents as a means to increase academic achievement.

            The Student Handbook will include:

·         Campus Parent Involvement Policy

·         Information on the parent’s right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of their child’s teachers

·         Information explaining state academic standards and assessments.

During the school year parents will be provided with:

·         Timely information about programs

·         A description and explanation of the school’s curriculum, forms of assessment used to measure student progress, and the proficiency levels students are expected to meet.

·         Information on the level of achievement of the parent’s child in each of the required state academic assessments.

·         Frequent reports on their child’s progress.

·         Reasonable access to staff, opportunities to volunteer and observe.

·         Home/School Compact that describes parents’ and schools’ responsibilities

·         Parent-teacher conferences after the first grading period, at which time the Home/School Compact will be discussed

·         Opportunities for meeting such as PTO, Campus Team, etc.

·         As necessary, timely notice if their child has been assigned or taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not highly qualified.

 

 

Building Capacity for Strong Parent Involvement

            Electra Elementary will support a variety of parent involvement strategies as it strives to develop and maintain an optimum learning environment for all students. Parents will be given full opportunities to participate in parent involvement activities. Information will be, to the extent practical, in a format and language that parents understand.

 

 

 

 

Annual Title I Parent Meeting

            The district will hold an annual meeting to review Title I guidelines and services provided.  Copies of the current Parent Involvement Policies and Home/School Compacts may be distributed at the meeting or at Parent-Teacher Conferences at the end of the first six weeks.  Parents will be encouraged to offer suggestions for revisions and updating the policies.

The meeting will be held at a convenient time and location. Notice of the meeting will be announced on the district’s website, in the local newspaper and notes sent home. If needed, a translator will be available.

 

Home/School Compact

            In accordance with Title I regulations, the home/school compacts will be annually reviewed and update as necessary. The compacts explain how students, parents, parents and staff will share responsibility for student performance and success, and will enable them to do so. Members of each Campus Team will be consulted in the design and implementation of the compact. Parents will be given a copy of the compact detailing the responsibilities that teachers, parents and students have in assisting students to accomplish their goals. Students and parents are encouraged to discuss the compact. They are also encouraged to sign that they are in agreement with the compact and return them to school: however, parents and /or guardians are required to return the compacts to school.  The compacts will be discussed with the parents at the Parent-Teacher Conference which is held after the first grading period.

 

 

Staff/Parent Communications

            Parents are informed of school activities through various means of communications throughout the school year. Newsletters, conferences, notices posted on the district’s website, articles in the local newspaper, personal contacts, and written notices are some of the means used to establish and maintain an open line of communication.

            Staff development include strategies to promote effective parent involvement activities. These activities educate staff members in the value of parent involvement.

Annual Evaluation
