Peabody High School
Parent Involvement Plan 2015-2016
The Peabody High School Parent Involvement Plan was jointly developed by Peabody High School teachers and parents to establish expectations for parent involvement.
General Expectations of Peabody High School:
ü Conduct an annual meeting with parents for the purpose of discussing Title I programs and securing their input for developing and revising policies related to parent involvement, including the use of school Title I funds. Parents will also be asked to share suggestions for improving parent participation in student learning.
ü Invite all parents to provide suggestions for removing barriers to student learning or voice concerns as needed.
ü Provide students with high-quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment through our highly-qualified and professional teachers and staff.

ü Provide to parents an individual student report about the performance of their child on the State assessments in Mathematics, English, and Science.
ü Provide opportunities for regular parent meetings and communication to formulate suggestions and participate in the decision-making process concerning their child through parent/teacher conferences and IEP meetings; which are flexible and offered in the evening and mornings.
ü Teachers and staff are made available at all times through email, scheduled appointments, and parent/teacher conferences.
ü Provide training sessions and staff development for teachers and staff to help improve communication with parents and academic achievement.
