Principal Bulletin Action Required - October 29, 2018

For Title I Schools:

There are several ESSA Parent Engagement requirements that must be completed by all schools that receive Title I funds.

Parent Engagement Funds: All Title I funded schools must set aside 1% of their Title I funds for Parent Engagement activities as described in the school “Parent & Family Engagement Policy”. Guidance about Parent Engagement can be found in the “CDE Parent Engagement Framework” (document attached).

Title I Parent Information: Can be added to existing “Back to School” or other parent meetings; inform parents about Title I requirements, how they can be involved in the Title I program (School Site Council); curriculum, assessments and how Title I funds support students.

School-Parent Compact: Schools must use the new ESSA template released in 2018. The compact must be revised to meet template requirements, reviewed by a parent group (SSC) and sent home annually to families (template attached).
