Parent and Family Engagement - (MCS Policy 5417 Title I Parent and Family Engagement - Updated Annually)

Parent Involvement Plan - Each school served under Title I is required to jointly develop with, and distribute to, parents of participating children a written parental involvement policy, agreed on by such parents. Parents shall be notified of the policy in an understandable and uniform format and, to the extent practicable, provided in a language the parents can understand. Such policy shall be made available to the local community and updated periodically to meet the changing needs of parents and the school. Note: This plan is distinct from the district parent involvement policy, but may be aligned when appropriate.

Compact - As a component of the school-level parental involvement policy developed under subsection (b), each school served under this part shall jointly develop with parents for all children served under this part a school-parent compact that outlines how parents, the entire school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership to help children achieve the State's high standards.

Annual Meeting - Each Title I school must convene an annual meeting, at a convenient time, to which all parents of participating children shall be invited and encouraged to attend, to inform parents of their school's participation under this part and to explain the requirements of this part and the right of the parents to be involved.

Additional Documentation Requirements
Maintain electronic and/or hard copies of agendas, meeting minutes, sign-in sheets, newsletter, etc.

Disseminate School Report Cards (from DPI) on annual basis. Copies/links to both the school and district report cards should be maintained and provided to parents and the public upon request.

Attestations for Highly Qualified Staff - Each Title I principal is required to annually attest to the highly qualified status of school level personnel. The completed/signed Attestation should be maintained on file at the school and a copy should be forwarded to the Federal Programs office for Moore County Schools.

Accessing Title I Funds - Title I schools will use the forms/templates below to create an annual budget, to submit funding proposals during the school year and to provide support documentation for accounts payable.

Annual Budget Plan - The Annual Budget Plan spreadsheet is to be used each spring for budget planning. Principals should work with their school improvement teams to design the budget based on a comprehensive needs assessment. The Federal Programs office will review this document with MCS Senior Staff and a pdf of the approved document will be returned to the principal/bookkeeper.

Federal Program Funding Proposal- To draw down funds from the approved Annual Budget Plan during the school year, this proposal form should be submitted to the Federal Programs office for approval. Once approved, an appropriate accounting code will be provided and the form will be returned to the principal/bookkeeper.
