NMHS Title I School Parent/Family Involvement Plan

2017-2018 Parent Involvement Plan

Revised 10.31.2017

 

What is The Parent Involvement Plan?

This is a plan that describes how NMHS will provide opportunities for parents to be involved in organized, ongoing and timely planning, which includes reviewing and improving the programs and policies. NMHS values the contributions and involvement of parents in order to establish an equal partnership for the common goal of improving student achievement. This plan describes the different ways that NMHS will support parent engagement and how parents can help plan and participate in activities and events to promote student learning both at school and at home.

How is it developed?

NMHS welcomes parent input and comments at any time regarding the plan. All parent feedback will be used to revise the plan for next year. The plan is posted on our school website for parents to view and will be available in the front office.

Who is it for?

All students participating in the Title I, Part A program, and their families, are encouraged and invited to fully participate in the opportunities described in this plan. NMHS will provide full opportunity for the participation of parents with limited English, parents with disabilities and parents of migratory children.

Where is it available?

The plan will be distributed at the beginning of the year. There will also be copies available in the front office and on the NMHS website.

What is Title I?

NMHS is identified as a Title I school as part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). Title I is designed to support State and local school reform efforts tied to challenging State academic standards in order to reinforce and enhance efforts to improve teaching and learning for students. Title I programs must be based on effective means of improving student achievement and include strategies to support parental involvement. All Title I schools must jointly develop with all parents a written parental involvement policy.

School-Parent Compacts
As part of this plan, NMHS and our parents will develop a school-parent compact, which is an agreement that parents, teachers, and students will develop together that explains how parents and teachers will work together to make sure all our students reach grade-level standards. The compacts will be reviewed and updated annually based on feedback from parents, students and teachers during Strategic Planning & Title I meetings. The school-parent compacts will be kept in the front office if parents need a copy.

Parental Involvement

NMHS believes that parent involvement means the participation of parents in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities, including ensuring:

  • That parents play an integral role in assisting their child's learning;
  • That parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child's education at school;
  • That parents are full partners in their child's education and are included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child;
  • The carrying out of other activities as described in this plan.

 

NMHS wants your input!

NMHS will take the following measures to promote and support parents as an important foundation of the school in order to strengthen the school and reach our school goals.

We will:

  • Ensure that all information related to school and parent programs, meetings, and other activities is posted on the school website, sent in a text message through School Way, and publicized in the newspaper.
  • Host multiple opportunities for parents to visit NMHS to give input and receive information.
  • Provide necessary materials for parents at meetings and activities to help parents work with their children to improve achievement.
  • Listen and respond to parents' requests for additional support for parental involvement activities.

NMHS is committed to helping and keeping our parents informed. Please call or email to give input on the School Improvement Plan, the Parent Involvement Policy, School-Parent Compacts or how we spend our Title I funds.
