Parent Involvement Policy

Belgreen High School recognizes the parent as our students' first and foremost important teacher.  Our school understands that continued and substantial parental involvement is not only important, but essential, for our students' school success.  Belgreen High School is committed to the maintenance and building of a strong parent/school partnership.  To support this partnership and in response to the Every Student Succeeds Act Legislation, the following Parent Involvement Policy has been established to guide our school's efforts:

Belgreen High School will:

  1. Convene an annual meeting, with flexible scheduling and multiple opportunities for parent attendance, during which our school's instructional programs and strategies, the tenets of a Title I schoolwide format, and opportunities for parental involvement will be shared.
  2. Offer a variety of activities to encourage parental involvement on various days and during various times to accommodate the schedules of parents and their expressed needs and interests.
  3. Provide parents the opportunity to be involved in an organized, ongoing, and timely way, in the planning, review, and improvement of Parent Involvement programs.  Additionally, parents will have the opportunity to be included in the planning, reviewing, and improvement of our school's Parent Involvement Policy.
  4. Provide parents of participating students with timely information about programs and activities for parents; provide a description and explanation of the cirricular in use at our school; forms of academic assessments used to measure student progress, and the proficiency levels students are expected to meet; and if requested by parents, provide opportunities for regular meetings to formulate suggestions and to participate, as appropriate, in decisions relating to the education of their children, and respond to any such suggestions as soon as possible.
  5. Maintain and provide avenues for comments and suggestions from parents on all issues, programs and procedural operations of our school.
  6.
