DCPS Title I Parent and Family Engagement mission is to empower parents and families to support their children's cognitive and social-emotional development from the cradle to the workforce and/or college. We will accomplish this by strengthening district, school, family and community partnerships through support and training.
To ensure that students become productive and responsible citizens, Title I Parent and Family Engagement Center staff, family members, and community agencies will work cooperatively to increase and strengthen family and school partnerships.
The Title I program for parents is designed to:
- Inform parents and families about Title I regulations
- Involve parents and families in local Title I decisions
- Provide literacy training
- Offer parental training in schools and the community on ways to raise student achievement via at home activities
- Encourage active participation in their child(ren)’s schools and education
