Parental Involvement Policy The Title 1 Staff and Faculty at West Buncombe Elementary School believe the education of each child is a partnership between parents, the child, and the school. Each partner needs to do their part to ensure the success for the children. The duties of each partner are explained in the Student/Parent/School Compact. We believe the involvement and education of our parents enhance the effectiveness of our program. Research shows parents involved in their children's education, creates a highly successful student. Therefore, we will provide opportunities through workshops and conferences to keep all parents informed and involved. Goals for WBES Title 1: Ø Establishing effective two-way communication with all parents. Ø Developing strategies and programs which enable parents to participate actively in their childs education. Ø Providing support and coordination for school staff and parents to implement and sustain appropriate parent involvement at all grade levels. Ø Utilizing community resources to enrich the educational environment and promote family and student success. Ø Supporting parents in their roles as the childs first and most important teacher The overall ambition of West Buncombe Elementary Schools Title One program is to promote partnerships that will increase parental involvement and participation in fostering the social, emotional, and academic growth of children.
