Title I Parent Involvement Plan


Wiley Elementary School believes that parent involvement is critical to the success of each student. Strong partnerships exist between staff, parents, and community members. Our Parent Volunteer Group exists to support and extend classroom learning.

Wiley Elementary encourages parental involvement through programs designed to increase parent-school communications. Parents will be involved in evaluating Title I programs and services. Another important component is the Home/School Compact. This compact is given to parents at our conferences. The compact is an agreement that the parent, the teacher, and the student provide a partnership for learning between school and home. Title I meetings that include parents are planned throughout the year. Parents are always welcome to help in the classroom and to offer suggestions regarding activities to enrich the education of our students.

Wiley Elementary School has developed a parent involvement plan which is based on the Utica Community Schools’ Parent Involvement Rules and Regulations Policy #5510 mandated by the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015.
