Price: $72.95


By Debbi Herrera

Translates legal language into action steps — so you can get parents involved.

Title I is clear: Schools must take action to ensure not only that parents are involved in their children’s education, but that their involvement is “meaningful.” From developing school-parent compacts, to removing barriers to communication, this one-of-a-kind resource combines plain-English explanations of your legal requirements with specific steps you can take to comply. Three convenient tabbed sections give you:

Legal Requirements – Easy-read clarification of Title I mandates for parental involvement, funding relevant activities, your schools’ specific responsibilities, building parent capacity and more.

Tips and Tools – No more starting from scratch! You get 44 ready-to-use model policies, sample letters and checklists including a School Report Card, Demonstrating Parental Involvement Compliance Checklist, and Parent-Teacher Conference Dos and Don’ts for Teachers. Seven forms also in Spanish!

Law and Guidance – Instant access to federal guidance and relevant sections of Title I, Part A when you need the actual language of the law.
