Parent engagement is an integral part of our Title I program. Parents are encouraged to become partners in helping their children achieve and become actively involved in all aspects of the process of the Title I program from writing our plan to its implementation and evaluation. A strong connection between home and school is a key element in students' success. We appreciate your input and feedback to continually improve.
