A Toolkit for Title I Parental Involvement
Ferguson, Chris
National Center for Family and Community Connections with Schools
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB Act) reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and provided a framework through which families, educators, and communities can work together to improve teaching and learning. Four principles guide this framework: (1) accountability for results; (2) local control and flexibility; (3) expanded parental choice; and (4) effective and successful programs that reflect scientifically based research. The parental involvement provisions of Title I, Part A of the ESEA reflect these principles. This toolkit is designed to provide information to those who are implementing Title I Part A parental involvement provisions. This toolkit is divided into sections that align to the legislation and previous guidance the Department has provided on Title I, Part A. Each section includes an explanation of relevant statute as well as sample forms or practices to assist in the implementation of the parental involvement provisions. Appended are: (1) Tool Quick Take; and (2) Resource Materials.
