Parent and Family Engagement

Parent and Family Engagement

Students at Eastside Elementary participate in Read Across America.

Cleveland ISD believes every child should have the opportunity to attain his/her full educational potential. Therefore, Cleveland ISD will maximize its resources to enable each child to become a successful learner. A key resource is the Cleveland community: administrators, teachers, school staff, parents, and local business and community members. We will work together to establish effective partnerships; together everyone achieves more. School and home must work together to realize higher student achievement. Ongoing, two-way meaningful communication will occur to facilitate mutual understanding and to stimulate student success. The goal of our Parent and Family Engagement program is student success.

Title I, Part A

Improving Basic Programs Operated By Local Educational Agencies—of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015, provides supplemental funding to state and local educational agencies to acquire additional education resources at schools serving high concentrations of students from low-income homes. These resources are used to improve the quality of education programs and ensure students from low-income families have opportunities to meet challenging state assessments.

Goal of Title I

The main goal of Title I is to create a collaborative partnership between schools, parents, and families to ensure academic success for all students. Cleveland ISD is committed to creating parent involvement plans for each campus.
