• Parental Involvement and Family Events
     
    The term “parental involvement” means the participation of parents in regular, two-way, meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities, including ensuring –
    • That parents play an integral role in assisting their child’s learning;
    • That parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education at school;
    • That parents are full partners in their child’s education and are included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child; and
    • The carrying out of other activities, such as those described in section 1118 of the ESEA. [Section 9101(32), ESEA.]

    The Neptune Township School District values its parents and families and wants them to become involved in our Title I schools through both the school-based Parental Advisory Committees (PACs) and our District Title I Family Events. As a member of a school-based PAC, families will:   Attend monthly meetings, get involved in family event planning, create school-based surveys, and review pertinent Title I plans (school-wide, school-parent compacts, and parental involvement policies).  If you are interested in joining either your child’s school-based PAC, please reach out to your child’s school. You can join at any time!  Any parent of a child at a Title I school may also participate with their child in up to five Title I sponsored family events held throughout the year.  Information on this year’s events is found below.

    Parent Involvement Policies and School-Parent Compacts

    Title I regulations require that each school served under Title I jointly develop with and distribute to parents of participating children, a written involvement policy agreed on by the parents that describes the requirements of SEC. 1118. Additionally, each school receiving funds under Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) must develop a written school-parent compact jointly with parents for all children participating in Title I, Part A activities, services, and programs. Below, please find our Title I Parent Involvement Policies and our School-Parent Compacts.

     
     
     
  • ESSA Title I Annual Meetings

    Every year, Title I funded schools are required to present information on ESSA and school performance to local school communities.  Annual Title I meetings for parents of participating Title I students must take place at a convenient time, where all parents of participating Title I students are invited and encouraged to attend, to inform parents of their school’s Title I plan, explain the requirements of the Title I program, and inform parents of their right to be involved in the school improvement plan. Below you will find the annual presentations from 2017-18.
