Parent Involvement Policy


Parents are full partners in their child's education and are included in decision-making that determine how Title I funds will be spent.  The LAUSD Title I Parental Involvement Policy outlines the guidelines that City of Angels School follows.  A school-level Parent and Family Involvement Policy (PIP) is developed jointly with and approved by parents.  Parents have the opportunity to participate in the design and implementation of the Title I program through the School Site Council (SSC) and the Local School Leadership Council (LSLC).  In addition, each school receiving Title I funds must develop a school-parent compact, which outlines how parents, the school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement.  

Title I schools must jointly develop, with parents of children receiving Title I services, a school-parent compact as a component of its written parental involvement policy.
The School-Parent Compact:
  • Written agreement between the school and the parents of children receiving Title I services
  • Identifies activities that the parents, entire school staff, and the students will undertake to share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement
  • Outlines the activities that the parents, school staff, and students will undertake to build and develop a partnership for achieving the state's high academic standards
The School-Parent Compact must describe:
  • The school's responsibility to provide high-quality curriculum and instruction to enable students to meet state standards
  • Ways in which parents will be responsible for supporting their child's learning
  • The importance of ongoing communication between teachers and parents, at a minimum:
    • Annual parent-teacher conferences (elementary)'
    • Frequent reports to parents on their child's progress
    • Reasonable access to staff
    • Opportunities to volunteer
    • Opportunities to observe classroom activities
