ESSA - Title 1, Part A

  • Title I, Part A provision requires Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) to actively engage parents and families of all students in the development of state and local education plans, school improvement plans, as well as Title I plans (ESSA Section 1116).
     
    The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) places a strong emphasis on the need for districts and schools to actively engage with parents and family members.  Through various measures, teams and committees, District 15 actively works to 
    establish expectations and objectives for meaningful parent and family involvement to improve student academic achievement and school performance; Coordinate and integrate parent and family engagement strategies with other relevant federal, state and local laws and programs; evaluate the effectiveness of the policy in improving quality of Title I schools, including identifying barriers to greater participation by families and the needs of parents and family members to assist with the learning of their children; and, conduct meaningful consultation with parents of participating children, which may include establishing an advisory board to develop, revise and review the engagement policy.
