    The Needs Assessment is the foundation of the Parent and Family Engagement plan.  When meeting with parents and stakeholders, data from the needs assessment process provides previous year and trend data that can be used to make decisions about plan implementation for the upcoming year.  That way decisions are not arbitrary but data-driven and purposeful.

    Schools may add additional lines as it is aligned to the Parent and Family Engagement Plan from the previous fiscal year – activities must match activities included on the Parent and Family Engagement Plan from the previous school year.  If an activity wasn’t held, a 0 should be included for the “Number of Participants” column with an explanation why the event wasn’t held in the “Results” column.


    Summary of the evaluation information and parent feedback collected from the Developmental Meeting held to support the development of this Parent and Family Engagement Plan.

    After reviewing parent feedback forms from Developmental Meeting, parents felt that we needed to ensure a variety of different parent meetings to meet their needs. Also, flexible dates and time schedules worked the best for parents who worked multiple jobs. The parents that met to make suggestions for different meetings during the upcoming year gave specific suggestions for meetings they felt would provide important information for them and make the best use of their time.


    Using previous year financial and programmatic outcomes; district and school climate data; parent perception data; data from SAC meetings; parent attendance data; observational data; parent survey data; data from the Title I Developmental meeting; parent interviews and focus groups; teacher and administrator feedback; other forms of needs assessment data; and carry out a needs assessment process.  Then, describe the barriers that hindered the participation and involvement of parents and family members during previous school years.

    Barrier 1: Meeting times was the primary barrier expressed by parents.

    Review- Offered flexible meeting times to encourage more parents to attend meetings. Some had a level of success, others did not. Parent meetings held before 6 were very difficult to attend.

    Barrier 2: parents not receiving school call outs due to incorrect information in FOCUS

    Review- Continued to take opportunities to update parent information in FOCUS. Did weekly call outs on Fridays for the coming week each week?

    Barrier 3: feeling that specific events were not applicable to their student.

    Review- With the wide variety of students at our school, the school holds different parent meetings. These meeting may be grade specific. Will continue to look into whole school needs.

    (1) Prioritize the TOP THREE the barriers (it may be possible to combine some) 

    (2) Describe the steps that will be taken during the upcoming school year to overcome the parent and family engagement barriers (required - include how the school will overcome barriers for students with family members who have limited English proficiency, parents and family members with disabilities, and parents and family members who are migrants in accordance to ESSA Section 1116 (f)).



    Steps or strategies that will be implemented to eliminate or reduce the barrier


    1. Flexible Times

    Incorporate virtual parent meetings. Offer flexible meeting time such as morning meetings to eliminate/reduce precious barrier.


    2. Contact Information

    Incorporate Update parent information at orientations and open house.


    3. Parent Involvement/

    Specific Needs

    Hold Middle School and High School meetings to address needs for each.


    Overarching Outcomes/Goals for the Current School Year

    Considering your barriers and the strategies that are intended to reduce or eliminate them, what are the overarching outcomes/goals for the current school year for parent and family engagement?

    Increase parent involvement in school activities and meetings to provide knowledge and information. Parents are actively participating in meetings and different school events.


    One goal this year is to re-establish an active PTSA to work on establishing a parent partnership to increase parent involvement. Another goal this year is to be more strategic in planning meaning events that are meaningful to our parents. Start by conducting an interest survey to gather data during virtual Orientation. Continue to refine our practice to incorporate several ways to positively message school events and activities.







    Communication is an extension of Needs Assessment as trend data has shown that parents comment that communication processes should be improved so they are fully engaged.


    Describe how the school will provide full opportunities for all parents and families (keeping in mind the diverse makeup of 21st Century families) to participate in all parent and family engagement activities.  This includes strategies for parents who have specific needs such as parents with special transportation needs, parents who work multiple jobs, court appointed parents, parents who are disabled, parents who speak English as a second language, migrant parents, parents with multiple children in multiple schools, guardians, guardians with multiple students in a home, etc.  Specifically, how will barriers be removed to ensure parents/guardians/family units are a part of their child’s education?

    We will continue to share information related to school, parent, family programs, meetings, school reports, and other activities in an understandable, uniform format in languages that the parents and families can understand on the school website, and via our school social media accounts. Increase signage notifications brochures and flyers.

    All parent and family engagement activities will be advertised to every family. All families are invited to participate in family and parents activities. School wide call outs and email blasts will be sent to the whole school population and not individual groups. Meetings will be offered using digital technology to record the presentations. Meeting times will be flexible as well. Additionally, communication about and from events will be offered in multiple language formats to ensure that any of our non-English speaking families have access as well.


    Describe how the school will share information related to school and parent and family programs, meetings, school reports, and other activities in an understandable, uniform format and in languages that the parents and families can understand?

    Schools may add or remove rows as needed. 




    The LEA shall ensure that each participating school, in conjunction with the parents of participating students, has jointly developed a school-parent compact that describes the school's responsibility to provide high quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment; addresses the importance of ongoing communication between teachers and parents; describes the ways in which each parent will be responsible for supporting their child's learning; and is discussed with parents of elementary aged students.


    As a Title I school, what evidence will you provide that will show that you have jointly developed a school-parent compact and that conferences were held with parents describing the compact? 

    Parents will receive a copy of the current compact during orientation. Each parent will have the opportunity to provide feedback and suggest modifications. Once this feedback has been collected, the compacts will be discussed in a developmental meeting in September. Signed compacts will be filed as well as discussed at parent conferences.

    How will the principal ensure required conferences are implemented with ALL parents pertaining explaining the Parent Compact?   

    School Counselors are required to schedule conferences for students. As part of the conference, the counselor or staff members review the compact with the parents and the students. Additionally, each parent is given a copy of the compact at orientation and signs a copy once the staff member receiving all of the demographic information and emergency information is received. The compact a part of the registration paperwork at orientation.




    The LEA shall ensure that each school implementing a Title I program devotes sufficient resources to effectively carry out high quality and ongoing professional development for teachers, principals, and paraprofessionals and, if appropriate, pupil services personnel, parents, and other staff to enable all students to meet the state's academic achievement standards.


    The LEA shall ensure that all instructional staff working in schools, funded wholly or in part with Title I, Part A, meet the statutory requirements of being state certified. The LEA must ensure instructional paraprofessionals work under the direct supervision of a teacher.

    If the LEA hires teachers or paraprofessionals to provide Title I services to private school students, the LEA shall ensure the teachers are state certified and paraprofessionals are highly qualified. The LEA shall ensure that paraprofessionals providing direct instruction to participating students are under the direct supervision and in close and frequent proximity to a state-certified public school teacher.


    As a Title I school, what evidence will you provide that will show that you (1) notification informing parents that their child was assigned or was taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who was not properly licensed or endorsed (2) provided a list of teachers who were ineffective, out-of-field, or inexperienced according to the statewide definitions described in Florida’s Approved ESSA State Plan.    

    Letters will be sent home with any students that is being taught by a teacher that is not fully licensed or certified as well as the plan of action for that teacher to become fully in compliance.




    When a school receives Title I, Part A funds, it is responsible for educating teachers, specialized instructional support personnel, administrators, and other staff, with the assistance of parents, in the value and utility of contributions of parents, and in how to reach out to, communicate with, and work with parents as equal partners, implement and coordinate parent programs, and build ties between parents and the school.  To the extent possible, parents should be involved in the development of training for teachers and educators to improve the effectiveness of training.  [ESEA Section 1116(e)(3)]


    Describe the professional development activities the school will provide to educate teachers, specialized instructional support personnel, principals, and other school leaders and other staff on…

    1.    The assistance of parents and families and in the value of their contributions.

    2.    How to reach out to, communicate with, and with parent and families as equal partners.

    3.    Implementing and coordinating parent and family programs and building ties between parent and families and the school.

    These topics will assist teachers’ and staff members’ ability to incorporate parent involvement in the school and classroom. Additionally, teachers and staff members will have a greater understanding of the challenges parents face as it results in involvement with school-based activities and their child’s academic endeavor. Teachers will be trained to effectively use various mechanisms such as Focus and Blackboard to communicate with parents about what is going on in the school and their classroom as well. Finally, our teachers and staff will be trained on how to extend our programs within the school to parents and families.
