Title I School-Level Parental Involvement Policy

Dear 54th Street Parents and Guardians, 


Please be advised that we have mailed out LAUSD's Title 1 School-Level Parental Involvement Policy (PIP). If you did not receive the PIP, you may review it below:


 54th Street Elementary School 

5501 S. Eileen Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90043 323.294.5275 


Title I School-Level Parental Involvement Policy 


54th St. Elementary School has developed a written Title I parental involvement policy with input from Title I parents. Parents on the governance councils gave input and the School Site Council approved it. It is distributed to parents of Title I students as part of the opening school packets given to all students. The policy describes the means for carrying out the following Title I parental involvement requirements [20 USC 6318 Section 1118(a)-(f) inclusive]. 


Section I: Involvement of Parents in the Title I Program 

To involve parents in the Title I program at 54th St. School, the following practices have been established: 

--The school convenes an annual meeting to inform parents of Title I students about Title I requirements and about the right of parents to be involved in the Title I program. This meeting is held as part of Back to School Night in the first 3-5 weeks of school each year. 

--The school offers a flexible number of meetings for Title I parents, such as meetings in the morning or evening. Meetings have been held in the morning, in the evening and occasionally on a Saturday morning. 

--The school involves parents of Title I students in an organized, ongoing, and timely way, in the planning, review, and improvement of the school’s Title I programs and the Title I parental involvement policy. Because many of the parents in the school community are working parents, the School Site Council parent/community representatives take the leadership in monitoring the Title I programs and the development of the parent involvement policy. The Council reviews the data from the previous year’s School Experience Survey annually to determine parent views regarding the school and to identify areas for improvement, especially in the areas of feeling welcome at the school and receiving information on their child’s progress. 

--The school provides parents of Title I students with timely information about Title I programs. Fliers are sent home regarding any information meetings. A school designee makes a Sunday evening call weekly using the ConnectEd system to update parents. The school website is updated monthly with current information. Information on the Title I programs is included in the opening school packet. 

--The school provides parents of Title I students with an explanation of the curriculum used at the school, the assessments used to measure student progress, and the proficiency levels students are expected to meet. This information is provided through newsletters, informational letters, handouts in meetings and brochures (if available) 

--If requested by parents of Title I students, the school provides opportunities for regular meetings that allow the parents to participate in decisions relating to the education of their children. Every fall, parents have the opportunity to be voted onto the School Site Council as a member or an alternate representative to have active input at monthly meetings. All parents are informed of the meetings and invited to attend. 


Section II: School-Parent Compact 

54th St. School distributes to parents of Title I students a school-parent compact. The compact, which has been jointly developed with parents, outlines how parents, the entire school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement. It describes specific ways the school and families will partner to help children achieve the State’s high academic standards. It addresses the following legally required items, as well as other items suggested by parents of Title I students. 

  •  The school’s responsibility to provide high-quality curriculum and instruction 
  •  The ways parents will be responsible for supporting their children’s learning are listed as well. 
  •  The importance of ongoing communication between parents and teachers through, at a minimum, annual parent-teacher conferences; frequent reports on student progress; access to staff; opportunities for parents to volunteer and participate in their child’s class; and opportunities to observe classroom activities 


The parents on the School Site Council have an opportunity to review the School Compact and make recommendations for revisions. The compact is sent home with all students the second or third week of school. 


Building Capacity for Involvement 

54th St. School engages Title I parents in meaningful interactions with the school. It supports a partnership among staff, parents, and the community to improve student academic achievement. To help reach these goals, the school has established the following practices. 

--The school provides Title I parents with assistance in understanding the State’s academic content standards, assessments, and how to monitor and improve the achievement of their children. Parent conferences are held in the first 15 weeks of school to review the curriculum for the upcoming year and to inform parents of students’ skill levels based on grade level diagnostic assessments. It is also discussed by teachers during their Back to School Night sessions with their parents. 

--The school provides Title I parents with materials and training to help them work with their children to improve their children's achievement. The school provides periodic workshops to assist parents with strategies that they can do to support their child’s academic achievement and social growth. 

--With the assistance of Title I parents, the school educates staff members about the value of parent contributions, and in how to work with parents as equal partners. Parent representatives on the School Site Council discuss parent concerns with the staff representatives on the Council. Those concerns are then shared by the reps with the larger staff. 

--The school coordinates and integrates the Title I parental involvement program with other programs, and conducts other activities, such as parent resource centers, to encourage and support parents in more fully participating in the education of their children. The school maintains a Parent Center that is directed by a Community Representative. All parents are invited to workshops. 

--The school distributes information related to school and parent programs, meetings, and other activities to Title I parents in a format and language that the parents understand. Fliers/written communication is sent home in two languages 75% of the time. The school marquee and website are maintained to inform parents of upcoming events and meetings. A school designee makes a Sunday evening call weekly using the ConnectEd system to keep parents informed. 

--The school provides support for parental involvement activities requested by Title I parents. The school personnel will research answers to questions posed by parents. The school is open to parents suggesting activities and will implement them whenever possible. Volunteer opportunities are made available to parents throughout the year. Parents are invited to visit their child’s classroom at any time. 



54th St School provides opportunities for the participation of all Title I parents, including parents with limited English proficiency, parents with disabilities, and parents of migratory students. Information and school reports are provided in a format and language that parents understand. Translation of materials and at meetings occur whenever possible. The school is fully adapted with handicap access so parents with disabilities can access entrance to the school and utilize facilities that are handicap adapted.
