Richland Elementary 

Parent Involvement Policy

2016-17

 

 

OVERVIEW

As per Public Law 107-110, the No Child Left Behind Act, Richland Elementary has adopted the following policy to ensure that the staff coordinates all possible programs to provide quality services to our children and families. This policy affords parents substantial and meaningful opportunities to participate in the education of their children.

 

Our goal is to maximize opportunities for all parents to participate in ways that will help all children to be successful in meeting the State’s academic content and academic achievement standards. In addition, we strive to provide opportunities for parents to assist us in maximizing our students’ potential to become successful citizens upon completion of their public school careers. 

 

To reach our goal, the staff and representative parents have drafted the following policy outlining the ways in which parents are encouraged to participate in the life of the school and the ways we will reach out to parents.  

 

 

REQUEST FOR SUGGESTIONS

The staff at Richland Elementary invites parents to offer suggestions for improving our efforts to involve parents in meaningful ways. Please call Kerri Sands at (817) 547-2000 or email at Kerri.Sands@birdvilleschools.net to give us your suggestions or to discuss opportunities for you to work directly with us.
