Parent Involvement Plan

Please review our current Parent Involvement Plan for the 2016-2017 school year. The purpose of the plan is to support parent/guardians in their efforts to provide children with a home/school/community environment that encourages academic achievement. Andrew Jackson Elementary encourages parental involvement in the educational process. We believe that schools and home have a shared goal in promoting success for our children.
 
To meet the changing needs of our parents and school, we ask that you review the Parent Involvement Plan.

Parent Involvement Plan 2016-2017
Andrew Jackson Elementary School
 
 
Below is the Title I Parent Involvement Plan for Andrew Jackson Elementary School. This school plan supports Board of Education Policy KB and is consistent with the District Parent Involvement Plan. We intend to accomplish two broad goals with this plan. Our first goal is to develop and maintain strong parent-school relationships which lead to parents being more actively engaged in the educational lives of their children. The second goal is to meet all statutory requirements for Title I Parent Involvement contained in the NCLB regulations §1112 and §1118.
