Campbell-Tintah Public School District #852
Parent Participation Plan
Campbell-Tintah Elementary School (CTE) parent Involvement Plan for Title I Program 2018-2019. Campbell-Tintah Elementary is committed to the goal of providing quality education for every child in the district. To this end, we want to establish partnerships with parents and with the community. Everyone gains if school and home work together to promote high achievement by our children. Neither home nor school can do the job alone. Parents play an extremely important role as children’s first teachers. Their support for their children and for the school is critical to their children’s success every step along the way.
Campbell-Tintah Elementary recognizes that some students may need the extra assistance available through the Title I program to reach the state’s high academic standards. Campbell-Tintah Elementary intends to include parents in all aspects of the school’s Title I program. The goal is a school-home partnership that will help all students in the district to succeed.
As listed in detail below, Campbell-Tintah Elementary School will hold monthly PLC meetings. The purpose of these meetings will be to review the parent involvement, program curriculum, and program implementations. Campbell-Tintah Elementary School is currently implementing the Response to Intervention (RTI) approach to meeting student needs. At this time school’s main reading curriculum, additional intervention tools from the series and leveled readers are used as well as language support components.
Campbell-Tintah Elementary School uses DIBELS testing as a universal screening tool used with all students in grades 1-6. Also, testing probes will be used with students at least every other week and the results can be shared with parents.

they will be implemented the subsequent school year. Questions to be considered include:
“What worked well this year?” and “What changes would we like to make for the next year?”

parents asking for their feedback about the Title I program. Questions may include
- Did the Title I program meet your child’s academic needs this school year?
- Do you feel like you were adequately made aware of the Title I program?
- Did you fully understand why your child was recommended for the Title I program?
- Were you confident that your child was getting the extra help they needed through the Title I program?
- If you were to be involved in the Title I Parent Advisory committee, what would be a good meeting time for you?
- If the Title I staff were available in the Title room during conferences, would you conference with them or do you feel the conference with the classroom teacher is adequate?
