Parent Involvement

The parents are selected by principals and meet several times a year to discuss topics such as the Parent Engagement Policy, School Parent Compacts and the District Strategic Plan. Special thanks to the WCS Federal Programs Department and our school principals for fostering parent engagement and also to Jones ES for hosting the meetings. According to the Department of Public Instruction, Title I is designed to support state and local school reform efforts tied to challenging state academic standards in order to reinforce and amplify efforts to improve teaching and learning for students struggling to meet state standards. Individual public schools with poverty rates above 40 percent may use Title I funds to operate schoolwide programs.
