Title I Parent Involvement Policy

Carl Sandburg Elementary School will provide a flexible number of activities and meetings to allow for parent involvement. These events will be scheduled throughout the year by the school to meet the diverse needs of the Sandburg population. Topics covered during events may (depending on identified needs) include:

  • Improving communication between school and home.
  • Discussing current student assessment data and student progress.
  • Providing information about school and district resources for student academic improvement.
  • Understanding of state standards across the curricular areas.
  • Understanding the standards-based report card and grade-level expected outcomes.
  • Parenting strategies (school counselor).
  • Conferencing with teachers.
  • Providing training programs to help parents support and work with their children at home and at school.
  • Advocating for teachers and parents.
  • Valuing and celebrating cultural diversity.

Parental input from the activities and meetings will be shared with the School Site Council (SSC) to provide an organized, ongoing, timely way of involving parents in the planning, review and improvement of the program.

The school-wide Sunday Notes through EdConnect and posted on the school website will inform parents and community members of all activities or meetings of interest.

Our upcoming parent center will be used to advertise parent meeting and training sessions offered at Sandburg, at the District Advisory Council's Harold J. Ballard Parent Center, and throughout the district. Every attempt is made to communicate with parents in their primary language.

During parent meetings, opportunities will be offered for the formulation of parental suggestions. Responses to their suggestions will be reviewed in a timely fashion, by the next scheduled meeting, if possible. Topics that are appropriate for SSC review/action will be placed on the agenda for the next regularly scheduled meeting by the school administration.

Parents are notified annually of individual student assessment results by the Research and Reporting Department and the Assessment Services Department. An explanation of the information is available in several languages.
