Parent Involvement Policy
Educating students at Englewood Elementary School is a collaborative effort involving the student, the teacher and the parents working together to achieve high student performance. Parents can participate in their child’s education and receive information in the following ways:
Open parent meetings are held monthly on the second Thursday of every month. Meetings will be held 6-7 p.m. The Title 1 objectives will be explained and the previous year’s student performance shared during the Back to School Night parent meeting in September. Specific information on individual student performance will be shared at the parent conferences in November. The January or February meeting will solicit parent feedback about the Parent Involvement Policy and the Parent Compact; an evaluation of parent involvement activities will be discussed at the end of the year.
Parents will be notified of their children’s academic progress through: progress reports (November, March, June); Parent Conferences (November, March); and informal contacts throughout the year as needed. Parents can contact teachers via email or phone, and are welcome to set up appointments before or after school to meet with them.
Parents will receive individual SBAC assessment results, and the interpretation of those results, through a district mailing.
A description of grade-level expectations and curriculum standards will be presented to parents in the fall.
By November 30, a School-Parent Compact will be presented to parents and signed by the teacher, parent and student. This compact specifies the means by which the school and the parent will build and sustain a partnership to help the student achieve high academic standards.
Parents are encouraged to volunteer in the classroom or special events. Parents can even help from home by preparing instructional materials or in other ways. Parents are encouraged to contact the teacher or the office for volunteer opportunities.
Information regarding the school and activities will be presented in the school newsletter as well as on our webpage.
