2012-2013 Parent Involvement Plan (PIP) The 2012-2013 School Parent Involvement Plan (PIP) will be due to the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) by October 12, 2012. The Department is not planning any significant changes to the 2012-2013 parental involvement plan template in content or format of the responses. FDOE is planning to make the following types of updates: Increase the character limits in the tables; Provide a printer friendly link to the public; Update the review section; Pre-populate the 2012-2013 system with the responses included in the 2011-2012 system; and pre-populate the 2011-2012 evaluation included in the 2012-2013 template with the plans from the 2011-2012 building capacity and staff development sections. If the school implemented all of the activities planned, then the school will only need to enter the number of sessions and number of participants. The Department will have a feature to delete or add rows in case the school’s plan changed.
Do not contact the Florida Department of Education for assistance with the completion of your school’s PIP. If further assistance is required, please contact Mr. Arnaldo A. Gonzalez, Title I Administration, at 305-953-6068. Remember that you will need to upload evidence of parent involvement in development of the Parent-School Compact and evidence of parent involvement in development of the PIP, as well as upload an electronic version of the School-Parent Compact. Be proactive. Conduct a PIP and School-Parent Compact Review Meeting for parents and staff, before the 2011-2012 school year ends, in order to compile evidences of parent input in the development of the PIP and the Parent-School Compact for the 2012-2013 school year. Also, identify barriers which could have hindered participation by parents in parental involvement activities during the 2011-2012 school year, and the steps the school will take to overcome the identified barriers. Further, when reviewing the school’s 2012-2013 PIP, results from the school’s M-DCPS Title I Parent/Family Involvement Survey 2012 should be utilized with revisions. Refer to the school PIP Assurances in order to meet State guidelines, applicable statutes, regulations, and procedures. Title I Parent Involvement Plan (PIP) and School-Parent Compact Reminders
Schools should begin the review/evaluation process for the Title I program as a whole and the PIP, at this time. Schools should begin to gather all of their plans (e.g. PIP, School-Parent Compact, and the School Improvement Plan (SIP) and take them to their parent groups for input into the changes that need to be made for the next year. Send a signed and dated copy of the school’s PIP Assurances to the Title I Office with the school’s Title I Annual Parent Meeting Documentation Packet by the 1 st week of November. Inform parents and parent organizations of the purpose and existence of the Parent Information and Resource Center(s) in Florida, i.e. PIRC at University of South Florida (USF).
