Philipsburg Osceola Area Elementary Schools, and the parents of the students participating in activities, services, and programs funded by Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), agree that this compact outlines how the parents, the entire school staff, and the students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership that will help children achieve the State’s high standards.
The Philipsburg-Osceola School District’s Title I Program is committed to the belief that all children can learn and acknowledges that parents share Title I’s commitment to the educational success of their children. We recognize that a child’s education is a responsibility shared by the school and family. Parents must be involved as knowledgeable partners. We define parent involvement as an on-going process that assists parents as their child’s first educator. Parent involvement promotes clear two-way dialogue between home and school, and supports parents as decision makers concerning the education of their children. To this end a written Title I plan for Title I parent involvement has been developed.
