As a result, these involvement opportunities empower parents to take action. By connecting parents to school officials, community members, other parents, knowledge, and powerful allies, these opportunities build bridges and networks that support schools and sustain whole communities.


 

Tulsa Public Schools  
Grimes Elementary Parent Involvement Plan 

PURPOSE: Tulsa Public Schools shall promote parent involvement in all schools as mandated by Title I, Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 and work as equal partners with parents in providing quality learning experiences for every student, every day, without exception. 

The Board believes and acknowledges that parent involvement raises the academic achievement level of students. Additionally, parents become empowered, teacher morale improves and communities grow stronger when parents take an active role in educating their children. To this end, schools shall involve parents in the education of their children at all grades levels. The Superintendent or his/her designee shall provide coordination, technical assistance and other support necessary to assist all schools in planning and implementing effective parent involvement activities to improve student academic achievement and school performance. Public Law 107-110, Every Student Succeeds Act; section 1118-Title I Parent Involvement establishes that to build capacity for parent involvement within schools, a district is to “develop jointly with, agree on with, and distribute to parents of participating children a written Parent Involvement Policy”. 

Building Parents Capacity for Involvement

The Board believes that empowering parents to insist on improvement and giving schools extra incentive to do so and by giving parents options regarding their children’s education helps the district to realize its vision to become the “District of Choice” for patrons of the community. As a result of this belief, the Board shall create an environment of supportive and collaborative parent involvement. 

1. Program Information for Parents: Grimes Elementary School shall provide assistance to parents of all children in understanding such topics as the state’s academic content and   achievement standards, the assessments being used, the requirements of Title 1, Every Student Succeeds Act and how to monitor their children’s progress and work with educators to improve their achievement. 

2. Materials and Training: Grimes Elementary School shall provide materials and training, such as literacy training and training on how to use technology, to help parents work with their children to improve achievement. 

3. Educate Educators: Grimes Elementary School shall educate teachers, pupil services personnel, principals and other staff, with the assistance of parents, in the value and utility of contributions of parents, and in how to reach out to, communicate with, and work with parents as equal partners, implement and coordinate parent programs and build ties between parents and the school. 

4. Preschool Coordination: Grimes Elementary School shall “to the extent feasible and appropriate,” coordinate and integrate parental involvement programs in our preschool program, and conduct other activities, such as parent resource centers, that encourage and support parents in more fully participating in the education of their children. 

5. Understandable Communication: Grimes Elementary School shall ensure that information related to school and parent programs, meetings and other activities is sent to the parents of all children in a format, and, to the extent practicable, in a language the parents can understand.
