PURPOSE: Dove Science Academy shall promote parent involvement in the school as mandated by Title I, No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 and work as
equal partners with parents in providing quality learning experiences for every student, every day, without exception.
The Board believes and acknowledges that parent involvement raises the academic achievement level of students. Additionally, parents become empowered, teacher morale improves, and communities grow stronger when parents take an active role in educating their children. To this end, schools shall involve parents in the education of their children at all grades levels. The Principal or his/her designee shall provide coordination, technical assistance, and other support necessary to assist the school in planning and implementing effective parent involvement activities to improve student academic achievement and school performance. Public Law l07-1l0, No Child Left Behind; section 1118-Title I Parent Involvement establishes that to build capacity for parent involvement within schools, a district is to "develop jointly with, agree on with, and distribute to parents of participating children a written Parent Involvement Policy".
Building Parents Capacity for Involvement
The Board believes that empowering parents to insist on improvement and giving schools extra incentive to do so and by giving parents options regarding their children's education helps the school to realize its vision “to prepare students for college with a focus on science, math, and computers.” for patrons of the community. As a result of this belief, the Board shall create an environment of supportive and collaborative parent involvement.
