Parent Involvement Policy

Johnston Parent Involvement Policy

Title I

The 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.

Johnston 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.

Assessments 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 .

Johnston 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.
