Parent Involvement Policies
The Yough School District welcomes and values the input and involvement of parents in their children’s education and believes it is key to improving student academic achievement and school performance.
According to Title I regulations, a school district must have a written parental involvement policy that sets the district’s expectations for parental involvement. In addition, each Title I school must also have a parental involvement policy. Below are links to these district-level and the building-level policies. In addition, school-home compacts for each school can be accessed below.
