Parent outreach is a critical component of Title I. Under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Title I schools are mandated to implement school level family involvement programs through meaningful consultation with parents and to provide opportunities to increase their knowledge and skills related to their children’s education.
A parent-teacher conference must be held annually. In the Bloomsburg Area School District, this conference often takes place toward the end of the first grading period (November). However, the conference may take place at other mutually convenient times.
Schools receive Title I funds to provide a comprehensive family involvement program that includes workshops focusing on strategies to help children improve their academic performance. Each Title I school in the Bloomsburg Area School District holds an annual Literacy Night to promote a positive school-to-home connection. In addition, each school has a parent resource center that provides families with educational resources to further support students' acquisition of skills. For information about your school’s family involvement activities and resource center, contact the school office.
