Parent and Family Engagement Guidelines

 

In order to achieve the level of parent and family engagement outlined in District Policy 2420, these procedures guide the development of each school’s annual parental involvement plan designed to foster a cooperative effort among parents, school, and community.

 

Parent involvement activities developed at each school will include opportunities for:

 

  1. Volunteering;
  2. Parent education;
  3. Home support for the child’s education; and
  4. Parent participation in school decision

 

The District will provide opportunities for professional development and resources for staff and parents/community regarding effective parent involvement practices.
