The Loyalsock Township School District is committed to the belief that all children can learn and acknowledges that parents share the school’s commitment to the educational success of their children.
The Loyalsock Township School District recognizes that a child’s education is a responsibility shared by the school and family and agrees that to effectively educate all students, the school and parents must work as knowledgeable partners.
We define parent and family engagement as an on-going process that helps parents and families to meet their basic obligation as their child’s first educator, promotes clear two-way dialogue between home and school and support parents as leaders and decision makers at all levels concerning the education of their children.
To this end, a written plan for Title I parent and family engagement that establishes programs and practices to improve parent engagement and reflects the needs of students and families will be jointly developed by parents and school staff. The plan will provide a sense of direction for designing initial and on-going activities.
The plan will also include a school-parent compact and support the development, implementation and regular evaluation of the parent and family engagement program by parents. Implementation of the plan will be a priority of the school community.
