Involvement of Parents

Describe how the school will involve parents in an organized, ongoing, and timely manner, in the planning, review, and improvement of Title I programs including involvement in the decisions regarding how funds for parental involvement will be used [Sections1118(c)(3), 1114(b)(2), and 1118(a)(2)(B)].

Response: Saint Clair Evans Academy involves parents in all aspects of its Title I programs which includes economically disadvantaged, disabled, limited literacy, and African-American. The School Advisory Council participates in the development, implementation, and evaluation of school level plans that include the School Improvement Plan and Parent Involvement Plan. Over 50% of the SAC members are non-employees. All parents are given the opportunity to review all plans and offer suggestions prior to approval. Their input is documented through the sign-in sheets and the minutes from the planning meetings, as well as all Parent Involvement meetings throughout the year. SAC, PTA, and Parent Involvement meetings will be held on the 1st Tuesday of each month. SAC will begin at 4:00 pm. PTA/Parent Involvement will start at 5:00 pm. Our goal in to increase participation by having all meetings on the same evening. Parent survey results are reviewed by SAC and parent involvement members to determine necessary changes.

Committees from the School Advisory Council and the Parent Involvement Plan along with the Administration will decide how parent involvement funds will be spent in accordance with the needs of the community as determined through parent surveys.

The Parent Involvement Plan will support suggestions for additional parent involvement activities. Addendums to the plan and budget adjustments for possible costs will be written and presented for final approvement.

In order to eliminate barriers to parent involvement from the previous year, the school will offer flexible scheduling of events. Parent workshops will provide parents with the necessary skills to help their children academically. The school will improve the communication between home and school through classroom newsletters, school newsletters, regular updating of the marquee, flyers and notices of important activities, and the increase use of the Duval Connect phone system. Saint Clair Evans will continue to work toward a family friendly school by building strong relationships with our community through staff trainings.

The Parent Involvement Plan will be posted on the Saint Clair Evans Academy websites. Hard copies of the plan are available upon request at the main office.
