Parent Involvement Plan

The Aransas Pass Independent School District believes that learning can best take place when there is shared effort, interest, and commitment among students, parents, and staff. The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001, serves as a means for helping students throughout the country achieve challenging academic standards and provides additional funding to qualified Title I Schools.

The goal of this parent involvement plan is to support in a more consistent and effective manner those things already in practice as well as to generate new ways of strengthening the partnership between school and home.

Title I identified schools receive 1% of the district’s total allocated funding for use in supporting parent and family involvement. Each school maintains a flexible plan for parent activities through the yearly parent involvement plan at the school level.

At each school, the partnership between school and home will be supported by:

  • convening an annual meeting in the school to provide information to parents about the school and available programs (Title I schools inform parents about the Title I program and activities supported by Title I.)
  • offering a flexible number of meetings, workshops, and parent conferences that will assist parents in improving their children’s achievement
  • providing opportunities for all parents to participate in school activities, including parents with disabilities and limited English proficiency
  • involving parents in an organized, ongoing, and timely way in the planning, review, and evaluation of programs
  • having all parties involved sign a Principal/Teacher/Parent/Student Compact stating how each will contribute to ensuring the student’s achievement assisting parents in understanding state academic content, the Texas accountability system, state and local assessments, and student performance standards
  • communicating clearly and frequently with parents about school policies, programs, and their own children
  • educating school personnel in the value of contributions of parents and in how to communicate with and build ties between the parent and the school

The Aransas Pass Independent School District will provide leadership in the development of clear avenues of parental involvement. Full realization of the partnership will be achieved through the ongoing commitment and active participation by both home and school.
