North Marion Middle School Title I, Part A Parent and Family Engagement Plan
Our primary mission at North Marion Middle School is to find ways of enhancing each child’s learning opportunities. We strive to work collaboratively with parents and families to nurture a love for learning and to help our students become lifelong learners. We believe that each child should be given opportunities to achieve and be successful and understand active participation by parents and family will help promote this success. The SAC shares a responsibility of monitoring and developing activities to increase community involvement within the school.
We will work together to establish effective family-school partnerships. School and home must also work together to help ensure our students will achieve and succeed. We are committed to ongoing, two-way, meaningful communication to help facilitate mutual understanding and to stimulate student success.
North Marion Middle is committed to the success of our students. We will work together with parents to monitor the effectiveness of our Parent and Family Engagement Plan and Title 1 programs to provide excellence in education. This policy will be promoted by the administration, and other school staff as we seek active participation by our parents.
Engagement of Parents
Parents are encouraged to join and attend SAC/Parent Information meetings in which the Principal and SAC members will collectively develop the Parent and Family Engagement Plan.
The Content Area Specialist and school dean will facilitate the implementation of the PFEP, with the on-going support of the administrative team. Evaluation of the PFEP will be on-going and will be conducted during administrative team meetings and SAC meetings. All parent and family input is valued and documented in SAC meeting minutes. These minutes are uploaded to the school’s Title 1 Google Classroom and maintained for monitoring purposes.
The SAC is made up of elected administrative team members and volunteers of teachers, parents and community members. All SAC by-laws, and Florida Statutes are followed when electing members for SAC. SAC meetings will be held quarterly – on the last Tuesday in September, November, January, and March. The meetings will be held at 4:30 pm., in order to allow more community members to participate.
