Iredell-Statesville Schools values the children it serves. I-SS believes that it is essential for a cooperative effort to exist between the schools and its parents. Meaningful involvement by all parents in the education of the children has a positive impact on student achievement, and our schools are committed to ensuring a cooperative climate.
Iredell-Statesville Schools will comply with the requirements contained within the "No Child Left Behind Act" of 2001, Title I, section 118(2) regarding parental involvement. The Iredell-Statesville Schools believe that the term "parental involvement" means the participation of parents in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities, ensuring the following:
- That parents play an integral role in assisting their child's learning;
- That parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child's education;
- That parents are full partners in their child's education and are included, as appropriate, in the decision making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child.
Iredell-Statesville Schools and every individual school will inform and involve parents throughout the school year. Using available communication tools, notices will be given for open houses, PTO/booster meetings, and area advisory meetings. Every attempt will be made to communicate the need for parent conferences and discussions surrounding student success. Publications will be generated and every effort will be made to insure that written and oral information is presented to parents in a language and form that is clear and concise. I-SS will utilize the school district website, school websites, and the Connect-Ed notification system to enchance communication with parents.
