Prince Ibraham Elementary School
2019 - 2020 Title 1 Parental Involvement and Engagement Policy
Prince Ibraham Elementary is a school that seeks the support of all stakeholders in the school governance process. We believe this is essential to ensure that all students attain high academic achievement, and become responsible citizens in a safe and supportive school environment that prepares them for the 21st Century.
Prince Ibraham will have an Annual Title 1 meeting at flexible times convenient to parents. The annual Title 1 meeting will inform parents about Title 1 and their right to be involved in their child’s education. The Annual Title 1 Meeting will occur once in the Fall and information revisited throughout the year.
Prince Ibraham strives to involve and engage parents and families in every aspect of the school curriculum. We will clearly articulate and provide consistent communication (i.e. student agendas, newsletters, conferences, parent meetings/forums, connect 5 phone messages), expectations, standards and student academic progress. Parents will be encouraged to actively partner with staff on ways to support their child’s academic expectations. Parent trainings and family education nights will be planned each year based on the school needs assessment and may include a Family Literacy Night, Math Night, etc.
Prince Ibraham strives to respond to any parent suggestions as soon as practicably possible. We will Involve parents in the development, implementation, and review of Parent-School Compacts, which is a written agreement of the responsibilities of the school and the parents in support of student achievement.
Parents are also encouraged to join and actively participate in PTA, School Improvement Team and the Title 1 Parent Advisory Council. Parents and families are encouraged to volunteer and help in various aspects of school activities. It is clearly communicated to our parents that they are always welcome and an important partner in their child’s education. Teachers and staff will effectively communicate with parents via newsletters, text, email, phone, notes and home visits when necessary.
Prince Ibraham will conduct morning meetings, promote a school-wide character education program, and promote PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) to all students to encourage positive interaction and behavior.
