Palmetto Academy for Learning Motorsports (PALM) Title I Parent Policy
PALM ensures that parent involvement is an integral and significant component of the total school program. The Parent Involvement Policy has been developed collaboratively with the Title I Committee that includes a parent, teacher, staff and administrator. Parents are invited to become involved in the process of school and overall program improvement by joining the school’s PTO/Booster Club Program. In addition to meeting several times each school year, the Title I Committee will meet at least once annually to review and revise the existing Title I Parent Policy to meet the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015.
Develop and distribute to parents of participating students a written Title I Parent Policy that will also be listed on school Website. This document is also available daily in the front office and will be made a part of the Student Handbook.
Involve parents in the process of school review and improvement by providing a voice to parents via parent workshops, grade level meetings and verbal and email communication with teachers & staff.
Provide materials and training by encouraging parents to attend school Title I Parenting Workshops, PTO/Booster Club workshops and school workshops. Parents will also be kept abreast of school procedures, reviewing progress report cards & kept aware of homework/class work requirements, and encouraged to attend parent-teacher conferences to help students improve academically in school.
Title I Compact – PALM has a school-parent compact on file in the school office. The compact is learning oriented and consists of a plan of action that details responsibilities by the school, the student, and the parent for the purpose of attaining high school achievement. This compact is distributed within the first month of school and is presented as a means of effective and on-going two-way communication between the school and the family.
2017-2018 Title I Parent Compact
PALMETTO ACADEMY FOR LEARNING MOTORSPORTS
Under Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015, each Title I school jointly develops with parents a school-parent compact that outlines how parents, the entire school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the way in which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership to help children achieve the State’s high standards.
As a school, we will:
Provide a high-quality effective learning environment that is safe and that enables the student to meet the State’s student academic achievement standards.
Provide ongoing two-way communication between teachers and parents through parent-teacher-student conferences and frequent reports to parents.
Provide reasonable access to staff through an “open-door” policy.
Provide opportunities for parents to volunteer and participate in their student’s class and observe classroom activities.
Provide a mutually respectful relationship between all parties (students, parents, teachers, and volunteers)
As a parent, I will:
Support my child’s learning by ensuring that he/she has proper rest and nutrition and attends school on time and on a regular basis.
Help set a positive tone for learning with my child.
Strive to make positive use of my time with my child (“quality” one on one time).
Participate in decisions relating to the education of my child through a mutually respectful relationship with school staff.
Provide a mutually respectful relationship between all parties (students, parents, teachers, and volunteers).
Attend personalized learning conferences (Parent Teacher Conferences) for my child and then carry out my part of the plan with my child at home. Specific academic strategies will be discussed at the personalized learning conference.
As a student, I will:
Proudly follow the behavioral expectations/”Pillars of Character” taught at our school.
Ask questions when I am not sure about a lesson or an assignment.
Make good choices like paying attention in class, staying on task, doing my best, and working hard at my schoolwork.
Be the very best “PALM STUDENT” that I can be each and every day.
