District Parent Involvement Policy
The Upper Perkiomen School District is committed to the belief that all children can learn and acknowledges that parents share the school’s commitment to the educational success of their children.
We recognize that a child’s education is a responsibility shared by the school and family and agree that to effectively educate all students, the schools and parents must work as partners.
We define parent and family involvement as an ongoing process that assists parents and families to meet their basic obligation as their child’s first educator, promotes clear two-way dialogue between home and school and supports parents as leaders and decision makers at all levels concerning the education of their children.
To this end and in keeping with the guidelines of the Every Student Succeeds Act, parents and school staff will jointly develop the Title I Parent Involvement Program. Appropriate offerings and practices will be implemented to enhance parent involvement activities and reflect the needs of the students and families. Each school’s parent program will provide a guideline for designing continuing rewarding and beneficial experiences for students, families and staff.
The Parent Involvement Program will include a school-parent compact and support the development, implementation and regular evaluation of the parent involvement program by parents.
Upper Perkiomen School District recognizes that a child’s education is a responsibility jointly shared by parents, teachers, administrators, and students. In order for a child to reach his/her full potential, our schools and parents must work together as equal partners.
Family involvement is an ongoing process that assists parents in working with their children at home and makes them feel part of the school community. We recognize the importance of parents being the first educators their children will encounter. We will continue to promote two-way communication between home and school. Valuing the importance of the role of all parents, we will ask for their input as leaders and decision makers in our schools.
