Parent Involvement Plan 2011-2012

Kennedy Elementary School

 

 

Below is the Title I Parent Involvement Plan for John F. Kennedy Elementary School. This school plan supports Board of Education Policy KB and is consistent with the District Parent Involvement Plan. We intend to accomplish two broad goals with this plan. Our first goal is to develop and maintain strong parent-school relationships which lead to parents being more actively engaged in the educational lives of their children. The second goal is to meet all statutory requirements for Title I Parent Involvement contained in the NCLB regulations §1112 and §1118.
