As a Title I parent, you are encouraged to become an active participant in your child’s education. There are many ways for you to do this. A great way to start is to attend open houses along with other school events. These offer opportunities to get to know teachers and other parents in a relaxed atmosphere. You can also volunteer in the school, classroom or PTA. Most importantly keep in touch with your child’s classroom teacher, Title I teacher, and other school staff throughout the year. Call, write notes, send e-mails and be sure to attend parent/teacher conferences.
Another way that you can help your child is to work with him/her at home. We have provided several links that explain the reading process and provide you with activities and ideas to use with your child at home. Click on any of the resource links below to learn more.
