2 PART 1: GENERAL EXPECTATIONS Dalton Public Schools believes that each student can learn more than he/she is currently learning and that students should be provided quality, engaging work. Dalton Public Schools is only as strong as the support of the beliefs and goals of the school system by the school board, staff, parents, students and citizens of the community. Parent and community involvement are an integral part of the learning process of all students. Dalton Public Schools has a Parent Involvement Policy to serve all the parents in our school district. The Dalton Public Schools Parent Involvement Policy will be available at each parent resource center, school, registration office, and parent workshops. The Dalton Public Schools Parent Involvement Policy will be reviewed by parents, administrators, parent involvement coordinators, and the community. The Dalton Public Schools Parent Involvement Policy will be available for review at the beginning of the year, at each parent resource center, and at each parent workshop. The Dalton Public Schools Parent Involvement Policy will be periodically updated and reviewed to meet the changing needs of the parents and the district. The Dalton Public Schools Parent Involvement Policy agrees to be governed by the following statutory definition of parental involvement and will carry out programs and activities and procedures in accordance with this definition. o Parental involvement means the participation of parents in regular, two way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities, including ensuring: That parents play an integral role in assisting their child s learning That parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child s education That parents are full partners in their child s education and are included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child And, ensuring that other activities, such as those described in section 1118 (b) of the ESEA are carried out.
