Shelton's Parent/Family Engagement

Parent/Family Engagement

The Shelton School District recognizes that a child’s education is a responsibility shared by parents, families, schools and the community during the duration that the student is enrolled in school.  Creating positive home, school, and community partnerships is essential to carrying out the shared responsibility necessary to improve schools and reinforce the importance of academic achievement.

 Purpose

The Parent and Family Engagement Policy is being adopted in order to:

  1. Support and secure strong effective partnerships among parents, families, schools and the community that serves to improve academic quality and student performance;
  2. Provide the coordination, technical assistance and other support necessary to assist schools in planning and implementing effective family engagement activities to improve student academic achievement and school performance; and
  3. Comply with Title I, Part A requirements regarding the establishment of a parent and family engagement policy according to Section 1116 of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

General Expectations

The Shelton School District recognizes that parent and family member involvement contributes to the achievement of academic standards by students participating in Title I programs. To promote parent and family engagement, the District and each school offering Title I services will implement its own written parent and family engagement plan in accordance with the requirements of Title I and with this policy. The superintendent or designee will ensure that all parent and family engagement plans comply with this policy and with the requirements of federal law.
