What is a Family Engagement Specialist?
My job as your Family Engagement Specialist is to help bridge the communication between school and home by helping parents get the information, help, and support they need to ensure their child’s academic success in school.
How can the Family Engagement Specialist help me?
My primary role as the Family Engagement Specialist is to empower parents to become active participants in the education of their children. Often, parents feel uncomfortable about sharing their questions or concerns with teachers or school administration. Since good communication between home and school is such a vital part of your child’s academic success, I will listen to your concerns and work with you to make sure that your situation is expressed and understood. Additionally, I will help you find ways to resolve any issues that may be hindering your child’s success in school. As the Family Engagement Specialist, I want to be sure that you understand what you can do to get involved and stay informed in order to help your child perform his/her best. Confidentiality is highly upheld.
What kind of assistance can the Family Engagement Specialist provide?
- Provide you with a personal tour of the school and explain the programs and resources available to you and your child. You do not have to be a new parent to request a school tour.
- Discuss some of the ways you can be more involved with the school.
- Answer questions you may have about school rules and regulations.
- Help arrange meetings between you and your child’s teachers or the school administration so that important information about your child is shared and understood.
- At your request, accompany you to a parent conference or other important meetings at the school to help clarify information about your child or home situation.
- Find out where to call or go to get special help or services for a child or your family.
Feel free to contact me by phone, email, or come by RES to see me.

What is Title I?
Title I is the largest federally funded program for elementary, middle, and high schools. Through Title I, money is given to school districts around the country based on the number of low-income families in each district. Each district uses its Title I money for extra educational services for children most in need of educational help. The focus of the Title I program is on helping all students meet the same high standards expected of all children.
Title I helps students, teachers, and parents!
Title I programs can help:
· Children do better in school and feel better about themselves
· Teachers understand the needs and concerns of students and parents
· Parents understand their child and be more involved in the child’s education
How Title I helps children
Title I schools work to:
· Identify students most in need of educational services
(students do not have to meet income standards to qualify)
· Set goals for improvement
· Measure student progress using standards set in the state’s Title I plan
· Develop programs that add to regular classroom instruction
· Involve parents in all aspects of the program
Ways Parents Can GET INVOLVED!
Become active in your Title I Program by doing the following:
· Learn more about the school, curriculum, special programs, Title I and your rights and responsibilities
· Teach your child in ways that ask what the teacher is doing
· Know Your Rights because knowledge is power
· Participate and Support your child academically at school and home
· Make Decisions about your child’s education and academic program
· Keep in contact with your child’s teacher through telephone, e-mail, or face-to-face conversations
