Parental Involvement Budget Survey
Tift County High School
Title 1 School
We value your input! As a parent or guardian of a student who receives Title I services in our school, you have the right to give input about how the school budgets and spends the Title I 1% Parental Involvement money. Parental involvement means the participation of parents in regular, two-way and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities, including ensuring:
That parents play an integral role in assisting their student’s learning;
That parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their student’s education at school;
That parents are full partners in their student’s education and are included, as appropriate, in decision making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their student.
We had $3,400 in the Title I 1% Parental Involvement budget. Last year, we spent the money on book bags filled with some basic school supplies. We have many students that have benefitted from this item being available to them.
Title 1 requires the utilization of 1% of the funds to support and promote parental involvement to schools. The parental involvement budget for the 2016-2017 school year is $3147.00. We would like to spend the Title I Parental Involvement budget this way:
-A portable projector screen to be utilized for parent meetings held in locations other than the school building.
-Physical storage (pocket folders, sheet protectors, pocket dividers) students will utilize as they create a resume and cover letter during Blue Devil Block Transition Lessons. Also included in this folder will be samples of letters of interest, thank you notes, money management guidelines and many life skills “how to” lists
-Electronic storage (jump drive) for student use as needed for saving documents for Transition Lessons.
Please respond to this online survey by January 6, 2017. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact SuzAnne Lamb, TCHS Parent Coordinator, at (229) 387-2475 or firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for taking the time to complete this very important survey.
Your feedback is greatly valued and sincerely appreciated.
