Aug Parents and students complete satisfaction surveys and this data is utilized to determine if the Title I plan is meeting the needs of parents and students. Adjustments are made according to the results of the surveys. A parent volunteer log is kept to document the number of volunteer hours on our campus. Sign in sheets are utilized to track the number of parents who attend parent teacher conferences.

Rose Ann Herrington How will your school use the parent interest surveys to select, plan and implement parental involvement activities that will be offered throughout the year?
