Title 1 Parent Policy
Leaksville-Spray Elementary School’s Title I Parent Policy
“Our mission is to empower each individual to reach his/her potential in a safe,
positive, stimulating and technologically advanced environment.”
The Parent Policy is included in the Parent/Student Handbook and is given to each family at the beginning of the year. A copy of the School Improvement Plan and the Parent Policy is located in the school office and is posted on the school website.
LSE staff recognizes that the involvement of parents in their children’s education has been demonstrated to increase student success. Parents are always welcome to visit and observe lessons. In order to build this strong partnership, we will provide various activities.
An Annual Meeting/Open House will be held in September Parents will meet with teachers, learn about Leaksville-Spray being a Title I school, and be given opportunities to become involved in their child’s education.
Additional meetings will be held throughout the year, to provide assistance to parents in understanding the state’s academic requirements. (School curriculum, academic assessment, state’s academic content and achievement standards, EOG test requirements) Meetings will also focus on how parents and teachers can work together to monitor the child’s progress in order to improve student achievement. Particular topics and needs from parents will be addressed through timely meetings. For example, Information on the K-2 Curriculum, an End of Grade Test Prep for 3-5 parents, Science/Math Fun Night, and other information sessions. Meetings will be held at different times during the day to accommodate parents’ schedules
Workshops to help volunteers learn how to be effective in the classroom will be held twice this year.
