Family Engagement Policy

Black Mountain Primary believes that the education of children is a cooperative effort between parents and the school. Family Engagement improves the educational achievement of the children. We believe the involvement of Title One parents increases the effectiveness of the program and contributes significantly to the success of children. In order to assure collaborative partnerships between parents and teachers, Black Mountain Primary is committed to pursuing the following goals in ways that recognize and respect the diversity and differing needs of families.


  • Establishing effective two-way communication with all parents.

  • Developing strategies and programs which enable parents to participate actively in their child’s education.

  • Providing support and coordination for school staff and parents to implement and sustain appropriate parent involvement at all grade levels.

  • Utilizing community resources to enrich the educational environment and promote family and student success.

  • Supporting parents in their roles as the child’s first and most important teacher.


Title One staff will hold an annual meeting during Open House to inform parents of the school’s participation in the Title One program. It is at this time that we will discuss the Home-School Compact, which outlines how parents may be involved in the partnership with the school in improving their child’s achievement. We will discuss the program and activities provided with Title One funds.


Title One staff will meet with individual parents of students being served upon parent or teacher request. An educational program has been planned for each student and parents will receive a progress report that includes the current reading level and functioning within their Title One instructional group, three times a year (October; January and June).


The overall ambition of Black Mountain Primary School’s Title One program is to promote partnerships that will increase parental involvement and participation in fostering the social, emotional and academic growth of children.
