The Parent Involvement Program

In order to fulfill the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) of the Elementary and Secondary Act (ESEA), to recognize that the parent is the child's first and most important teacher, and to provide students with the skills to meet the high challenging standards required by the state, the Elmore County Public School System agrees to implement the formation of partnerships between the home, the school, and the community. 

Representatives from parent groups, agencies, and individual parents are asked to participate in Parent Advisory Committees, at each Title I school and at the system level.  The System Wide Parent Advisory Committee members plan and review the LEA Parental Involvement Plan.  As members of the school level parent advisory committee parents will help: develop Home-School Compacts that reflect the responsibility of the school, teacher, parent and student in working toward student success, plan and review the school's Title I Targeted Assistance and/or School-Wide Plan, and Parent Involvement Plan. 

Parents are given the opportunity to participate in all system-wide advisory committees, School Instructional Leadership Teams, LEA Roundtable and many others.  Each Title I school will survey parents and analyze the responses to determine how well the needs of parents and the requirements of NCLB are being met. A Parent Report Day held during the first grading period provides an opportunity, for parents and teachers, to discuss student performance and to identify the needs of each student. 

System wide ESL Parent Meetings are held, in each school community, each fall to cover topics of concern to ESL Parents.  Presentations are translated into Spanish and translators are available during these sessions.  When feasible, important school information is sent home in other languages to parents making this request.
