Trenton Rosenwald Middle School Parent Involvement Plan
The Trenton Rosenwald Middle School Parent Involvement Plan aligns with the Trenton Special School District Parent Involvement Plan and is based on the framework through which families, educators, and communities can work together to improve teaching and learning. Families have a major influence on children’s success in school and through life. As a result of this influence, positive results with student achievement occur when schools, families, and community groups work together to support learning.
Research indicates that a positive partnership between school and family will contribute to student achievement and success in school. These benefits include:
· Improved ability of parents to assist their children with school and learning
· Increased student achievement
· Increased student attendance
· Improved student attitudes and positive behavior
· Increased graduation rate
· Greater success in post-secondary education
The Parent Involvement Plan was developed to build trusting, collaborative relationships among administrators, teachers, families, and community members. It focuses on family needs as well as their cultural differences. As a working document, this plan seeks to alleviate barriers or factors which might inhibit meaningful interaction between parents and school personnel. This document will continue to grow and develop as the current process is evaluated annually for effectiveness. Being a Title I School, and through collaboration, coordination, technical assistance, and other support, school administration, teachers, parents, and community leaders offer the following plan for parental involvement. The plan is in compliance with local board policy, state law, and Federal mandates of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and is posted on the TRMS school website.
The Trenton Rosenwald Middle School Parent Involvement Plan focuses on five goals:
Goal 1: Trenton Rosenwald Middle School will use various communication strategies to provide additional information to parents and to increase parent and family engagement.
Goal 2: Trenton Rosenwald Middle School will hold regularly scheduled parent meetings, conferences, and activities throughout the school year providing flexible meeting times, with the goal of increasing parent and family engagement and building staff and parent capacity to engage in these types of efforts.
Goal 3: Trenton Rosenwald Middle School will provide opportunities for parents to be involved in the development, implementation, and evaluation of the school wide school improvement plan.
Goal 4: Trenton Rosenwald Middle School will provide resources for parents.
Goal 5: Trenton Rosenwald Middle School, in coordination with TSSD Federal Programs Policies, will administer and use parent surveys to evaluate our Parent Involvement Plan and activities, and to solicit feedback for improving parent engagement in the school.
