minority background). LAUSD will use the findings of such evaluation to design strategies for more effective parental involvement and to revise as needed, the District Title I Parent Involvement Policy.

6. LAUSD will involve parents in the activities of Title I schools, will ensure schools communicate effectively with parents, welcome them as partners, and provide opportunities to help them support their children’s learning and achievement. LAUSD will ensure that parents are knowledgeable about student and school performance data, their rights and responsibilities, including their right to choose a school for their children, and how to support their children’s education.

 

This is a summary of the LAUSD Title I Parent Involvement Policy passed in December of 2012.

A hard copy of the entire policy may be requested at each school.
