Family Engagement

Parent & Family Engagement - Title I

Notice:

Out of an abundance of caution, all workshops and events have been cancelled.

More information will be posted when available.


Research shows that family engagement in education is crucial. No matter their income or background, students with involved families are more likely to have higher grades and test scores, attend school regularly, have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school.

The Seminole County Public Schools' Title I Program promotes the belief that all children can learn and acknowledges that families share the schools' commitment to educational success for all students. We recognize that positive parent/family engagement is essential to student achievement and we encourage family engagement in school educational planning and operations.

Title I, Part A

Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS) receives an annual allocation of federal dollars to provide supplemental resources to schools that have high percentages of children who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.  The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and Florida law determine the eligibility of schools and how funds are allocated to eligible schools and programs. 

Currently, 14 elementary schools, four middle schools, three special centers, and 12 non-public schools are receiving supplemental resources through Title I, Part A.  

What is the “Parents-Right-to-Know”?

Federal law requires that schools notify parents if their child has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not highly qualified.  Parents may also request information about the professional qualifications of the student’s classroom teacher.  Click here to learn more about the Parents-Right-to-Know.
