School system asking for Title 1 input

By JOYANNA LOVE/ Senior Staff Writer

Chilton County schools are asking for parental input about its Title 1 programs.

“Parental Involvement is very important to our school system and our individual schools,” Ashlie Harrison, director of Teaching and learning, said. “With the support of our parents, we are able to provide a lot of opportunities for our students that we would not otherwise be able to do. This survey helps us determine what the parents want to see in our schools, how we can improve and what we are doing well. The answers received from the survey are viewed by the schools leadership team each year and it helps them make decisions about how to improve everything from academics, athletics and overall parental involvement.”

All survey takers remain anonymous.

Examples of some of the questions on the survey include:

  1. “Do you feel welcome at your child’s school?
  2.  Does your child’s school encourage you to be involved in your child’s education?
  3. Are you aware of the academic goals of your school?
  4. What things could your school do to help get you involved as a parent?
  5. What Title I activities did you participate in at the school this year?”

“Every school in our district asks their parents to complete the survey,” Harrison said. “Parents of all K-12 students are encouraged to complete the survey.”

The survey can be found on the website or Facebook of the student’s school.

The deadline to participate in the survey is July 1.

Harrison said schools will use the information “to make informed decisions about the 20-21 school year.
