The Pontotoc County School District believes that the involvement of parents and community members is an essential component of nurturing students. Furthermore, the district believes there is a direct link between parent involvement and student achievement. Every effort to invite and consider parent and community input made to ensure the success of our students. A team of parents, teachers, and administrators developed the following parental involvement policy.
The goals for parental involvement in the Title I program include:
To convene an annual meeting to inform parents of their school's participation in the Title I program, its requirements, and their right to be involved:
To offer a flexible number of meetings at times appropriate for parents to attend and to provide services that relate to parental involvement;
To involve parents, in an organized, ongoing, and timely way, in the planning, preview and improvement of the Title I program.
To provide parents of participating children:
Timely information about Title I programs
