Parent Engagement

Welcome Back!

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! It is so nice to see the excitement that a new school year begins.As the Parent Liaison for Title I schools in Madison City, it my job to serve as a liaison between parents, teachers, and the school. I am thrilled to serve in this role.

This year, I will share a quarterly newsletter in order provide information about Title I schools. In this newsletter, I will also share with you ways can be involved/engaged in your child's learning.

Purpose of Being a Title I School

The purpose of the Title I, Part A program is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.

For the 2022-2023 school year, these schools are Columbia, Horizon, Madison, Midtown, and Mill Creek.

Parent Tip-End of the Day Questions

Are you tired of getting the same answers when you ask your child, "How was your day?" See below questions that will require specific answers and require the use of higher order thinking skills. These questions will help you engage with your child about their day and will give you insight into what your child is learning.
