Title 1; Parent and Family Liaison

Parent & Family Engagement


It is commonly acknowledged that one of the most important components of student achievement and success is parent involvement.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires that Title I schools must:

  • Develop with parents a written policy, agreed on by parents, that describes how the school will carry out its required family engagement activities
  • Hold an annual meeting for families to explain the Title I, Part A program and the rights of parents to be involved and offer other meetings, at flexible times.
  • Involve parents in the planning, review, and improvement of the Title I program.
  • Develop a school-parent compact that outlines how parents, students, and school staff will share the responsibility for improving student achievement, and that describes how parents and teachers will communicate.

The Parent Resource Center
The Title I Parent Center is designed to develop a home/school support system to promote parent involvement and improve student academic achievement. The division’s Parent Resource Center is located at 2200 Piedmont Ave. Portsmouth, VA 23704.
