Parent Involvement Policy

  • Island Park Parent Involvement Policy
    At Island Park we welcome and encourage parents, guardians and families to participate in their child’s education. This important and valued partnership helps ensure your child’s success while maintaining open communication and fostering mutual support.

    Parent/Guardian/Family involvement may include, but is not limited to the following activities:
    • Title 1 Information Nights (program information, Title 1 compact dissemination, formulation and feedback)
    • ELL Information Night
    • Classroom Curriculum Night
    • Classroom volunteer opportunities
    • At-home volunteer opportunities
    • Parent/Guardian/Family training opportunities (for example: How to Support Your Child’s Reading)
    • Parent/Teacher flexible conferences
    • Evening Events (International Night, Musical Performances, etc.)
    • Committee work (for example: Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) where parents are involved with the development and approval of school policies and improvement plans)
    • PTA Involvement

     Parent participation in the development of involvement opportunities is welcomed and valued.

     
    Title 1/ELL
    Each year, during Title 1 and ELL information nights, we seek suggestions, recommendations and feedback regarding parent involvement, asking how we can improve family/school connections and what is working well. 

    We also strive to keep stakeholders informed through:

    • Updates accompanying regular classroom report cards
    • Email and phone conversations
    • Newsletters and web-postings
    • Classroom communications
