Title I, Part A, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) reauthorized as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), ensures that local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools provide parents and families of Title I students with the information they need to make well-informed choices for their children. This includes more effectively sharing responsibility for their child’s success, and helping their children’s schools develop effective and successful programs.
All LEAs that receive Title I funds shall conduct outreach to all parents and family members and implement programs, activities, and procedures for the involvement of parents and family members. Such programs, activities, and procedures shall be planned and implemented with meaningful consultation with parents of participating children.
The Amite County school district actively engages parents and family members of children served in each Title I school. Engaging with parents, families and communities is one, important way we are working to narrow gaps of opportunity and achievement to help all children learn and succeed.
Raising the next generation is a shared responsibility. When families, communities and schools work together, students are more successful and the entire community benefits.
