Fall Creek Elementary is a Title I school. We receive federal Title I money which is used to provide extra instruction and resources to help meet the academic needs of all students. Every child at our school is considered to be a Title I child. As a parent of a Title I child, you are not only encouraged to become an active participant in your child’s education, but you have the right to do so as well. One way in which we accomplish the goal of greater parent involvement is through the development, implementation, and communication of our Title I Parent Involvement Policy.
We also believe that parent involvement in the Title I program increases its effectiveness and contributes significantly to the success of the students. Our school strives to involve parents in school-related activities throughout the school year in the following ways:
Plan parent involvement activities that are designed to improve student academic performance
Build capacity for strong parental involvement by:
a) Providing progress reports to parents at regular intervals
b) Providing training and resources for parents to help their children at home
c) Inviting parents to visit their child’s classroom and/or to volunteer for school activities
d) Inviting parents to an annual meeting at which time parental rights will be explained and input will be solicited for ways of improving Title I services, including the design and implementation of the Title I program at Fall Creek Elementary
Communicate Title I programs and activities in a variety of media forms
If you have questions or concerns about our policy or if you would like to meet with the Title I team for more information about how we can better serve your child, please feel free to contact the Principal, Lavonne Fortner, Fall Creek Title I Teacher, Beth Scott, or Yadkin County Title I Director, Dr. James Sheek.
