Title One and Parent Involvement

 

Title One District Mission Statement

“District and school-based Title One 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 One Overview

Components of Title One are:

  1. Effective Instruction
  2. Professional Development
  3. 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 One 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.
