Spanish Parent Involvement Policy


The staff at Charles T. Koontz Intermediate School view the parents and guardians of our students as our partners.  We promote the involvement of parents in the planning and implementation of programs and policies that affect our students.  We believe that our students' success depends on us working together and fostering a greater sense of community.


In order to promote this connection between home and school:

  • Parents will be encouraged to help develop the school's Parent Plan and Policy and update it annually.
  • An annual meeting will be held near the beginning of every school year to inform parents of the Title I Program goals, guidelines, services, and parental rights as well as offer suggestions of ways to continue to expand upon their students' learning at home.
  • All parents will receive a copy of the School-Parent Compact explaining the home/school partnership for building students' success and fostering parental involvement.
  • Progress reports will be sent home quarterly with targeted Title I students along with the report cards.
  • Parents will be informed about opportunities for themselves and their children in a timely manner and, when available, in a language they understand.
  • Parent Involvement Opportunities will be offered for parents to learn strategies and to gain resources to work with their child at home in order to increase their child's academic success.
  • Opportunities for parents and students will be offered at various times throughout the year and in a variety of ways. 

For example: Heritage Night, Coffee with the Principal, Student Led Conferences and etc.
