DRE’s evaluation support for family and community involvement includes but is not limited to conducting a survey of parents (Parent Survey results); reporting on compliance with federal grant requirements; and upon request, assisting parent support staff at the district and campus levels with their data collection and reporting activities. The federal Every Student Succeeds Act Title I A and III A grant programs emphasize parent and family involvement to support children’s academic success. For information about the Title I A grant, click here. According to the Title III A grant program, the district must provide support to parents of students who are English learners. All campuses are required to involve parents and family members in school plans and activities, especially the campus improvement plan process.
