Title 1 Family Engagement Plan 

Bellefontaine City Schools 

 

The Bellefontaine City School District defines family engagement as the participation of families in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning, student social emotional growth, and other school activities including the beliefs that: 

  • Families play an integral role assisting in their child’s learning and growth 

  • Families are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education 

  • Families are full partners in their child’s education with the school  

The school district will provide coordination, technical assistance and other support necessary to assist school buildings in planning and implementing Title 1 activities.  In addition, the school district will coordinate and integrate family engagement strategies with programs such as Head Start and preschool programs. 

The school district will put into operation programs, activities and procedures for the involvement of families in its school buildings.  Title 1 programs will be planned and operated by consulting with families of participating children. Title 1 school buildings will: 

  • Convene an annual Spring meeting to explain the program to families and inform them of their rights to be involved. 

  • Offer a flexible number of meetings through the school year during: 

    • Parent-teacher conferences  

    • Family nights 

    • District leadership team meetings 

  • Implement a school-family compact and distribute/communicate this with families and make it available on the school website 

  • Provide families with a description of the curriculum, Ohio learning standards and expectations of student achievement and growth 

  • Involve families in the review of the program 

  • Provide materials and training to help families work with their child to improve academic achievement
