  • Golden Valley has developed a written Title I parental involvement policy with input from Title I parents. The School Site Council and the ELAC Committee met September 24, 2014 to review the policy from previous years and make changes that were applicable. Both committees consist of parents, staff members, and students. The committees voted on the changes and the policy was distributed to parents of Title 1 students at Back to School Night. The policy is also available on campus in our Parent Liaison Office and in our Counseling Office. Both of these school offices offer bilingual assistance. The policy describes the means for carrying out the following Title I parental involvement requirements [20 USC 6318 Section 1118(a)-(f) inclusive].


    Involvement of Parents in the Title I Program

    To involve parents in the Title I program at Golden Valley, 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.

    • During registration in early spring the annual Cougar Fair is held and parents of incoming Freshmen are spoken to about Title 1 programs as well as other programs offered at Golden Valley.
    • Round Up is held in August and parents are given Title 1 information during this time.
    • Back to School Night is held in September and MUHSD pamphlets are disbursed to parents and remain on display throughout the school year.

    The school offers a flexible number of meetings for Title I parents, such as meetings in the afternoon or evening. Child care is offered at all the parent meetings, workshops, and events.

    • SSC and ELAC meetings are held once a month in room B-6 on Golden Valley Campus. Meetings begin at 3:30 p.m. and conclude at 5:30 p.m.
    • Parent Workshops are held monthly in room B-6 at 6:00 p.m.
    • Annual Parent Institute Feb. 28, 2015
    • ESL and Computer Classes Mondays and Thursday 5:30-7:30 p.m. September -May 2014-2015

    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.**

    The school provides parents of Title I students with timely information about Title I programs.

    The school provides parents of Title I students with an explanation of the curriculum used at the school, the assessments used to measure student progress, and the proficiency levels students are expected to meet.

    • 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.
    • SSC and ELAC meetings are held once a month in room B-6 on Golden Valley Campus. Meetings begin at 3:30 p.m. and conclude at 5:30 p.m.

    **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. [20 USC 6318 Section 1118(c)(3)]


    School Parent Compact

    Golden Valley High School has developed a school-parent compact that is available upon request to parents of Title I students. The compact, which has been jointly developed with parents, outlines how parents, the entire school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement. It describes specific ways the school and families will partner to help children achieve the State’s high academic standards. It addresses the following legally required items, as well as other items suggested by parents of Title I students.

    • The school’s responsibility to provide high-quality curriculum and instruction
    • The ways parents will be responsible for supporting their children’s learning
    • The importance of ongoing communication between parents and teachers through, at a minimum, annual parent-teacher conferences; frequent reports on student progress; access to staff; opportunities for parents to volunteer and participate in their child’s class; and opportunities to observe classroom activities
