Section E: Program Evaluation JLCS s School Based Management Team will review formally the effectiveness of its parent outreach efforts at least two (2) times each year. The Committee, made up of teachers, parents and school staff, will determine the effectiveness of the parental involvement plan and make changes if warranted. While collecting evidence about satisfaction with the program and the school s efforts to increase parental involvement will be a part of the evaluation, the survey will also collect specific information on the (1) number of parents participating in workshops and meetings; (2) specific needs of parents; (3) effectiveness of specific strategies; and (4) engagement of parents in activities to support student academic growth. JLCS CPA will ask parents to fill out a parent interest survey each September in order to acquire information concerning the activities parents feel will be most beneficial in our joint efforts to support their child academically. JLCS CPA will use the results of the parent interest survey to plan parental involvement activities for the year. JLCS CPA may evaluate the activities that were suggested by the parents at the end of the year as part of the annual parental involvement plan evaluation.
