Family Involvement in Title I, Part A Services
We know that family involvement in a child’s education is a greater
predictor of academic success than whether or not that family is affluent or
poor. That’s why Title I, Part A program regulations insist on robust family
involvement activities at every school where these federal funds support
effective teaching and engaged learning.
Title I, Part A Defines a Parent. Natural parent, legal guardian or a person standing in loco parentis (in the place of) a parent. Could be a grand- or step-parent with whom the child lives, or a person who is legally responsible for the child’s welfare.
Title I, Part A Defines Parent Involvement. Participation of parents in regular, two-way and meaningful communications with school staff that involves the student, addresses learning and engages the family in school activities.
