Title I Family Engagement Policy

Brier Creek Elementary 2018-2019

The policy says...

Title I in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), a federal program, provides additional money to qualifying schools. The Davidson County School System upholds the philosophy of parent involvement with no­ fault, consensus, and collaboration as its guiding principles. It also encourages and provides training opportunities for the parent or interested adult to be a team player in the education of children.

The Davidson County Board of Education will ensure that all Title I stakeholders are provided the opportunity to sign a compact to help students succeed. The Student-Teacher-Parent Compact identifies contributions each can make to ensure that every student meets State student performance standards.

  • sustaining a welcoming school environment
