Parent Involvement Programs Mission Statement
District and school-based Title I Parent Involvement Programs in Polk County will strive to build RELATIONSHIPS to create real family engagement for every child, every family, every teacher, every day.
Title I Overview
Components of Title I are:
- Effective Instruction
- Professional Development
- Parental Involvement
Studies show that the more parents are involved in the education of their child, the more academically successful that child will be. The goal of the Title I Parent Involvement program is to give school-based Parent Involvement Facilitators information, materials and resources to enable them to provide for their parents at the school-level. It is the job of the Facilitator to give parents the tools and resources necessary for them to help their child at home. Everyone working together in this way gives the child the best possible support for doing well in school
Pledge for Parental Involvement
As a parent, guardian, or caring adult, I hereby give my pledge to support a high-quality education for all of Florida’s students to the best of my ability.
I have high expectations for my child and all of Florida’s children to succeed in school and in life.
I pledge to stay involved, serve as a positive role model, and maintain open communication with my child’s teacher and school to ensure education remains a top priority in my household.
I understand that it is my responsibility to stay informed and involved in all aspects of my child’s education.
Education is the key to success, and I will do everything I can to nurture my child’s ability to learn.
Information from the Parent Institute
School Parent Involvement Plan gives parents information about what parent involvement is, the value of a parent being involved in their child’s education, what will be offered during the school year to help parents have the tools and resources necessary to help their child at home and what the school is constantly doing in order to have more parents involved.
