Title I Guidelines

Goodwin Frazier Elementary School

Title 1 Parent And Family Engagement Policy

2022-2023

 

      Research shows that students are more successful when their parents/guardians are actively involved in their education. The Title 1 Parent Involvement Guidelines, in cooperation with the School-Home Compact, were developed to guide the expectations of each individual having direct impact on our students’ education. Both items were created with the assistance and approval of parents, community members, and school administrators.  

 

      Title 1 is a federally funded program designed to provide a high-quality education that will enable all children to meet the state’s student performance standard.  Title 1 is a part of the “No Child Left Behind Act” passed by Congress in 2002.  Title 1 programs can provide supplemental instruction in reading, math, science and social studies.  These programs use effective methods and instructional strategies that are grounded in scientifically based research.  A school is selected as a Title 1 school on the basis of the number of students within its boundaries who are eligible for free or reduced-priced meals.  Students are selected to participate based on academic need.

 

      Goodwin Frazier Elementary School conducts a Fall Annual Title 1 Meeting, held within the first quarter of the school year, which will provide information on Title 1 laws, the requirements, and the rights of and benefits to parents and students. Parent/Teacher Conferences provide an opportunity for parents/guardians to make suggestions and participate in decisions relating to the education of their children. A Spring Annual Title 1 Meeting will be held in the last quarter of the school year, allowing parents, community members, and school administrators to update the current School-Home Compact and the Title 1 Parent Involvement Guidelines, as needed.

 

      GFES will make available information and opportunities that will help guide parents when working to improve their children’s academics. The Title 1 Specialist will be provided information on how to reach out to, communicate with, and work with parents as equal partners, implement and coordinate parent programs, and build ties between the parents and the school. 

 

      Parent Involvement is very important to Comal ISD.  Goodwin Frazier Elementary School has a Title 1 Specialist who is available to assist families in a variety of ways.  The Title 1 Specialist is the liaison between school, families, and the community.  The Title 1 Specialist provides opportunities for parents/family members to be actively involved in their students’ academic life.  Information related to school and parent/family programs, meetings, and other activities is sent to the parents/families via the student and various forms of media, to include email and other forms of social media.

GFES...Where you belong!

 

GFES  believes that families, students, and school staff should work in partnership to help each student reach their highest potential.  We understand that collaborative involvement in a child’s education will help their achievement, attitude, and behavior.  Therefore, we agree to carry out these expectations to the best of our ability.  This compact is reviewed and revised annually by a group of staff, parents, and community members.  Translation is available if needed.
