Title I regulations require that each school served under Title I jointly develop with and distribute to parents of participating children, a written parental involvement policy agreed on by parents that describes the requirements outlined in Title I law section 1118 and those listed below. It is the policy of K/R to promote maximum parent involvement in a student's education. K/R recognizes the important role parents play in their children's education and realizes that school success increases as parents become more involved in the daily education of their children. K/R recognizes that district, parents and community have a mutual responsiblitlly to ensure the success of our students.
