    PARENTS: VOICE YOUR OPINIONS VIA SCHOOL SURVEYS

    Parent involvement means the participation of parents is on-going, two-way, and provides meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities.  This involvement ensures: 

    • Parents play an integral role in their child’s learning at school and at home;
    • Parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s school education;
    • Parents are full partners in their child’s education and are included, as appropriate, in decision-making and advisory committees to assist in the education of their child;
    • The carrying out of other activities, such as those described in section 1118 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act;
    • Parents have the district’s Parent Involvement Program;
    • School Improvement Plans, district and school/parent engagement strategies are based on findings from parent survey results;
    • School personnel meet the requirement to communicate the results of the survey to parents (e.g., discuss in School Advisory Committee meetings) and decide how to implement new strategies in the parent involvement policy’s revision; and
    • Sharing district and individual school evaluation results with every school assists in building district-wide capacity.

    Users can view the entire survey in English or Spanish. Parents without computer access may complete a survey at their child’s school or at the Title I Office located at 306 NW 7 Ave. in Ocala. Surveys are also available on the Parent Portal website. All surveys must be completed by January 31, 2017.
