Cobb Parent & Family Engagement 23-24

Cobb Sixth Grade Campus


Parent and Family Engagement Policy

The Title I Parent Involvement Policy has been developed by the CPAC (Campus Planning and

Advisory Committee), which includes staff members and parents. Information received from the Parent Involvement Survey filled out by parents was used to develop the policy in order to increase parental involvement.

The staff at Cobb 6th Grade Campus believes parent involvement and meeting the individual needs of students are very important in helping students succeed. In order to promote parent involvement, the staff at Cobb 6th Grade Campus will assist in the following ways:

Distributing Information:

• The Parent Involvement Policy will be communicated and distributed to each school family through (Cobb Web Site, Parent Meetings, etc.). The policy is presented in both English and Spanish.

• Information related to school and parent coffees, parent programs, meetings, and other activities would be communicated to parents through newsletters, Cobb Web Site, Automated Black Board, and Parent meetings throughout the school year.

• Parents will be provided with timely information about the Title I program through (i.e. parent coffees, newsletters, parent teacher conferences, Cobb webpage, etc.)

• Information about the school curriculum, forms of assessment used to measure progress and the proficiency level students are expected to meet will be distributed by the school staff through parent teacher conferences, letters to parents, Cobb webpage, flyers, etc.

• The achievement test information (STAAR) shall be shared through the classroom teachers and counselors with parents or guardians of each child. This will be done through letters, and teachers/parent conferences.

• Information regarding the State’s academic content standards, local academic assessments, how to monitor a child’s progress, and work with teachers to improve achievement will be shared through newsletters, parent coffees, parent involvement, and parent workshops.
