Title One Information


Calavera Hills Elementary School has developed a written Title I Parental Involvement Policy based on the philosophy that families, students and school staff should work as partners to help each child reach his/her potential.  Administration meets regularly with parents through PTA meetings, ELAC meetings and School Site Council meetings as well as an annual Title I Informational meeting to inform parents and provide parents with information and supports to be active participants in their child(s) education.  Each year, a Title I Student/Teacher/Parent/Principal Compact will be shared, signed and discussed with all stakeholders. In addition, the Title I School policy will be shared with parents and posted on the school loop website. The policy describes the means for carrying out the following Title I parental involvement requirements [20 USC 6318 Section 1118(a)­(f) inclusive].
