Family Engagement Plan

    Family Engagement Plan

    2018- 2019

    Family involvement is a vital part of any student’s success. Johnston Elementary strives to provide an inviting atmosphere in which parents feel welcome and know they are valued partners in working toward their child’s achievement in school.

    We will offer several workshops and programs for families and guardians that relate directly to what their children are learning in the classroom and inform them on how they can help their children at home.

    Parents and guardians will have reasonable access to staff through phone calls and scheduled conferences. We will provide timely responses to suggestions and questions raised by phone calls, emails, or conferences.

    Title I Annual Meeting and Open House: This will be an opportunity for parents and guardians to meet teachers and ask questions about curriculum and procedures. Title I will present information about what Title I is, what our policy is, and activities we will be hosting to encourage parent involvement.

    Materials and Communications available from Title I for Parents and Guardians:

    Regular newsletters sent home from the county office and school Title I staff
