Opportunities for Parental Involvement (School Year 2017-18)
Camino Nuevo Charter Academy, Kayne Siart Campus has developed a written Title I parental involvement policy with input from Title I parents. In partnership with the School Site Councils, Camino Nuevo Charter Academy developed the policy. Each year, CNCA also collects feedback from parents to inform any revisions to the policy that may be necessary. It has distributed the policy to parents of Title I students. The policy is distributed at the beginning of the school year to each family and is available online via the CNCA website The policy describes the means for carrying out the following Title I parental involvement requirements [20 USC 6318 Section 1118(a)-(f) inclusive].
To involve parents in the Title I program at Camino Nuevo Charter Academy, Kayne Siart Campus, the following practices have been established:
• The school convenes an annual meeting to inform parents of Title I students about Title I requirements and about the right of parents to be involved in the Title I program.
In the beginning of the school year, the school holds parent orientation meetings where the principal reviews involvement opportunities for parents and shares essential elements of the teaching frameworks used in the classrooms. We review our mission & goals and present data results to develop an action plan for the year. Information is also provided during our monthly Parent Coffee meetings, which take place twice every month.
• The school offers a flexible number of meetings for Title I parents, such as meetings in the morning or evening.
Parent meetings are offered in the morning, during the school day, and in the afternoons to accommodate schedules and maximize attendance. Beginning of the year meetings also take place by grade level to provide information geared to specific grade level needs.
• The school involves parents of Title I students in an organized, ongoing, and timely way, in the planning, review*, and improvement of the school’s Title I programs and the Title I parental involvement policy.**
During the April and May Parent Coffee and the School Site Council meetings, the Principal requests feedback from parents and teachers about which programs and services they value most and which have positively impacted student achievement to ensure it is prioritized in the school’s funding plan.
• The school provides parents of Title I students with timely information about Title I programs.
The school provides timely information via weekly Thursday bulletins , monthly Parent Coffee meetings, quarterly grade level meetings, and other school site committees meetings scheduled throughout the year.

Several Parent workshops are offered throughout the year to explain curriculum, instruction, and best practices utilized in classrooms that support students in learning high rigorous common core grade level standards. Throughout the various workshops offered, the school shares data, instructional programs/frameworks, assessments used to collect data, and provide opportunities for parents to walk through classrooms to see Title I programs being used first hand.
• If requested by parents of Title I students, the school provides opportunities for regular meetings that allow the parents to participate in decisions relating to the education of their children.
The School Site Council and the ELAC committee meet once a month and provides parents, students, and staff the opportunity to participate in the decision making process, share concerns and suggestions they may have, and request individual meetings with school leaders.
*It may be helpful to include the parental involvement policy review in the annual review of the Single Plan for Student Achievement.
**The policy must be updated periodically to meet changing needs of parents and the school. If the school has a process in place for involving parents in planning and designing the school’s programs, the school may use that process if it includes adequate representation of parents of Title I children.
