Johnston Parent Involvement Policy
Title I staff and faculty of Johnston Elementary School believe the
education of each child is a partnership between the parent or guardian,
the child and the school. This partnership is documented in the
Students/Parent/School Compact that is cosigned by each student, his/her
guardian, a Title I teacher, and the principal. This document shows
that we are all agreeing to work together to help each child succeed.
Elementary believes the involvement of parents and guardians greatly
enhances the effectiveness of our program and increases the success of
each child. Therefore, Johnston Elementary School Title I will provide
opportunities to involve parents and guardians in meaningful activities
throughout the year. These opportunities will include a wide variety of
materials and training in literacy to help parents and caregivers to
work with their children.
are an on-going process in all schools. The alphabetical and numeric
level of students is difficult to understand. The Johnston Title I team
will provide assistance to parents and guardians in understanding the
placement of their student for small group reading instruction. We will
also help in understanding the student’s current reading level and the
level we will strive to achieve as the team of student, school and
parent or guardian .
Elementary School also believes communication between school and home
is essential to the success of each child. The Johnston Elementary
School Title I team will provide clear and consistent communication
between staff and parents regarding meetings and school functions in a
variety of ways including newsletters, emails, phone calls, and the
school website in the parent’s home language. Parents will also be given
the opportunity to conference with Title I staff to discuss their child
being served by Title I.
