Parent outreach is a critical component of Title I. Under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Title I schools are mandated to implement school level family involvement programs through meaningful consultation with parents of participating children and to provide opportunities to increase their knowledge and skills related to their children’s education.
A parent-teacher conference must be held annually. In Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS), this conference often takes place on specific dates set aside in November. However, the conference may take place at other mutually convenient times.
Schools receive Title I funds to provide a comprehensive family involvement program that includes workshops focusing on strategies to help children improve their academic performance. For information about your school’s family involvement activities, contact the school office or visit the school’s website at /parents/ and click the School-odex link.
