Parent and Family Engagement Policy & Parents Right to Know

Carver Heights Elementary Parent and Family Engagement Policy


Carver Heights Elementary adheres to the philosophy that parental engagement is essential in the total teaching and learning process of children.  We will have our Annual Back to School Night (Title I public meeting) will on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 at 5:30pm  to discuss our school wide project, federal regulations, and requirements as it relates to our Title I program and parents’ rights to be involved.  School-Parent Compact Agreements will be sent home at the beginning of the year that outlines how parents, school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved students’ achievement


Carver Heights Elementary provides the following parental engagement activities:

  • Parent Resource Center, located in Room 101 is equipped with materials (books, kits, games, etc.) that parents may check out to use with their child.
  • Parent Workshops and Seminars offered throughout the year
  • Curriculum night events (Data Night, Math Matters Night, and many more) for each grade level to explain our policies, curriculum, and classroom expectations
