2022-2023 Middlesex Elementary School (MES) PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT PLAN

Sections 1118 of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires the involvement of parents of participating children in the design and implementation of Title I projects.  A local educational agency 

may receive funds under this part only if such agency implements programs, activities, and procedures for the involvement of parents in programs assisted under this part consistent with this section. Such programs, activities, and procedures shall be planned and implemented with meaningful consultation with parents of participating children. 

Describe the programs, activities, and procedures established to build the schools’ and parents’ capacity for meaningful parental involvement.



Each school served under this part shall convene an annual meeting, at a convenient time, to which all parents of participating children shall be invited and encouraged to attend, to inform parents of their school’s participation in Title I and to explain the requirements of the Title I program, and the right of the parents to be involved.

Describe: MES will hold a meeting on October 11th to share with all stakeholders the guidelines under Title I that applies to our school. 


Each school served shall offer a flexible number of meetings, such as meetings in the morning or evening, and may provide, with Title I funds, transportation, child care, or home visits, as such services relate to parental involvement.

Describe: Teachers will develop a schedule of flexible meetings (evenings) for parents beginning in October and concluding in May. Administration will provide all parents the opportunity to meet with faculty and staff. For individual concerns parents may schedule a time to meet with their child’s teacher before or after school and also during teacher’s planning. Time must be agreed upon by parent and teacher.


Parents should be involved in an organized, ongoing, and timely way, in planning, review, and improvement of Title I programs, including the planning, review, and improvement of the school parental involvement policy and the joint development of the schoolwide program plan (if applicable).

Describe: There will be a parent representative on the Leadership Team. The parent may relay information to parents as needed.


Parents must be provided with timely information about programs under this part; and a description and explanation of the curriculum in use at the school, the forms of academic assessment used to measure student progress, and the proficiency levels students are expected to meet.

Describe: The staff of MES will support the Common Core State Standards curriculum adopted by the state of North Carolina. Students will be assessed on the standards from the state (mClass, Exact Path, Mastery Connect, EOGs) and any other district/state mandated assessments. Parents/Guardians will receive their child’s data on mClass, Mastery Connect, and EOGs concluding each assessment. During parent conferences, all assessment data will be discussed. The school offers a Curriculum Night/Virtual Parent Informational Meeting in October to review standards, curriculum, schedules, resources, etc. with parents. At the end of the year, Transition Night (in April) is conducted to inform parents about their child’s next grade level (review standards, curriculum, schedules, resources, etc. and about how to prepare over the summer).


If requested, schools must provide parents opportunities for regular meetings to formulate suggestions and to participate, as appropriate, in decisions relating to the education of their children, and respond to any such suggestions as soon as practicably possible.

Describe: Flexible meeting dates will be established for the 2022-2023 academic year. Dates for the meetings will be displayed on the school’s website/ through Dojo and will be communicated to parents by the use of the Connect-ed system and flyers in students’ folders. Parents will also be given a survey to complete at the middle of the year to offer suggestions.


If the schoolwide program plan( if applicable) is not satisfactory to the parents of participating children, the school is required to submit any parent comments on the plan when the school makes the plan available to the LEA.



Each participating school shall jointly develop with parents for all children served  school-parent compact that outlines how parents, the entire school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership to help children achieve State standards.

Describe: Each student received a compact in their school agenda that outlines shared responsibilities of parents-students-administrators to be signed by all stakeholders to improve student academic performance. The Student/Parent Handbook generated at the district level is available online and a few hard copies are located in the front office. The parents have also been sent via class dojo and it is posted online, the district’s Accountability Standards so parents/guardians know the district’s expectations for each child (academically and attendance wise) depending on their child’s grade level.


LEAs and schools served under this part shall provide assistance to parents of children served by the school or LEA, as appropriate, in understanding such topics as the State’s academic content standards and State student academic standards, State and local academic assessments, the requirements of Title I, and how to monitor a child’s progress and work with educators to improve the achievement of their children.

Describe: Parents are encouraged to attend meetings to receive and discuss information related to Common Core State Standards, Assessments, and Title I requirements. Parents will be invited to attend curriculum day events and parent conferences where they will learn more about how to monitor and assist their child’s progress and improve academic achievement.

Annual Title I Public Meeting
Our school will host an annual public meeting for all parents and staff members. This meeting is to inform parents about their rights under the law and to provide them with the information that will allow them to be fully active in their child’s education. This meeting will be held in conjunction with grade level curriculum nights. An additional meeting will be held the following morning at 9:00 AM for those unable to attend. This meeting will also provide parents an opportunity to review the School-Parent-Student Compact and suggest possible changes. Parents will be asked for recommendations of future dates and times to meet throughout the year.
Flexible Meetings
Each parent meeting will be held at two different times to make it more convenient for parents to attend. The information shared at the Annual Public meeting will also be shared with parents of new students as they enroll and will be included in the monthly school newsletter for parents who may not be able to attend. 
Involving Parents in an Organized, Ongoing, and Timely Way
Progress reports will be provided to parents three times during each quarter. Parenting education sessions will also be conducted throughout the school year to share ways to assist parents and teachers to work together as partners. Parents will be asked for their suggestions or recommendations at all meetings.
Timely Information
Parents will receive information on a regular basis through the weekly packet; grade-level curriculum nights, Parent Resource Center, and quarterly report cards. Parents’ questions and concerns will be addressed at each session throughout the year.
Opportunities for Regular Meetings
Parent meetings will be held throughout the year which gives parents a chance to be actively involved in their child’s education.

Parents are given a chance to give feedback on a quarterly and annual basis.
Providing for Parent Comments
