Chattahoochee County Education Center is identified as a Title I school as part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). Title I is designed to support State and local school reform efforts tied to challenging State academic standards in order to reinforce and enhance efforts to improve teaching and learning for students. Title I programs must be based on effective means of improving student achievement and include strategies to support parental involvement. All Title I schools must jointly develop with all parents a written parental involvement policy.

Description of School Parental Involvement Plan/Policy

What is it? This is a plan that describes how Chattahoochee County Education Center will provide opportunities to improve parent engagement to support student learning. C.C.E.C. values the contributions and involvement of parents in order to establish an equal partnership for the common goal of improving student achievement. This plan describes the different ways that we will support parent engagement and how parents can help plan and participate in activities and events to promote student learning at school and at home.

How is it developed? Chattahoochee County Education Center welcomes parent input and comments at any time regarding the plan. All parent feedback will be used to revise the plan for next year. We invite parent to come out to the revision meetings throughout the year for this policy. The Parent Coordinator Ms. Hughes is also always open to one on one parent revision meetings.

Who is it for? All students participating in the Title I, Part A program, and their families, are encouraged and invited to fully participate in the opportunities described in this plan. Chattahoochee County Education Center is Schoolwide which means that all students at C.C.E.C. are served under the Title I, Part A Program. Parents can attain more information about Title I at our Annual Title I Parent Meeting at the beginning of the school year.

Parents can also retrieve a copy of the plan in the Parent Resource Center or by requesting a copy to be sent via email. Just send your request to ahughes@chattco.org.
