Title I Family Engagement

  • Title I, Part A helps to provide Districts with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families with funds to help ensure that these students are receiving the same quality education as all students, helping them to meet challenging state academic standards. Engaging with parents, families and communities is one important aspect of this program.

    Pueblo School District No 60 recognizes that a child’s education is a responsibility shared by both the school and family. In support of our goal to educate all students effectively, our schools and families must work together as knowledgeable partners. Research supports that active parent involvement improves student academic and social achievement. 

    Although families are diverse in culture, language and needs, parents must share the school’s commitment to the educational success of their children. 

    In keeping with these beliefs, we support and encourage collaborative participation and decision-making for student learning by:

    • Involving parents in determining the vision for the school and monitoring progress toward this vision.
      Guiding families to make informed decisions about the enrollment options.
    • Sharing and exchanging information on instructional goals, learning targets and teaching strategies that can be used at home to provide continuity between home and school.
      Fostering communication between families and school by addressing the personal/social skills that help students progress toward attaining learning targets for the 21st-century citizen.
    • Providing timely information to parents and students to increase transparency regarding academic attainment and achievement.
      Valuing and promoting family and staff partnerships where all participants plan, design and implement various educational policies and programs (e.g. literacy, ELA, preschool and math).
    • Conducting an annual evaluation to measure the effectiveness of family partnerships, school communications, parent involvement activities and parent policy.


    There are many opportunities for parents and guardians to be involved in your child’s education.  Please contact your child’s school for more information.
