ACPS welcomes parents as important team members in the educational process. Research proves that student achievement is positively impacted by the involvement of parents in their child's education. All Title I schools implement the Parent Involvement Policy of the ACPS and align their plans with the ACPS Parent Involvement Plan.
Each school develops a Parent Involvement Plan and proposed budget as part of its School Improvement Plan with input from parents. Each school's Parent Involvement Plan and budget are shared with parents. The implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of the plan are ongoing through parent participation and feedback. Parent Involvement Plans are available on each school's website for parent/community review and comment.
Parent involvement activities at each school are supported by the Title I Parent Involvement Coordinators. The coordinators arrange workshops and assist parents and staff with parent programs at their assigned schools. The Title I parent involvement staff includes:
- Delsie Fazenbaker, firstname.lastname@example.org: Beall, George's Creek, West Side, Westernport
- Laura Biser, email@example.com: Cash Valley, Mt. Savage, Northeast
- Hannah Eisenhour, firstname.lastname@example.org: John Humbird, South Penn
