Parent Survey for 2015-2016

What? You are invited to provide input and assist us in developing the Lamar County School System’s Parent Involvement Policy, Equity Plan, and Implementation Plan known as the CLIP. Your input is invaluable to our planning and providing the best service for your child’s success.

Why? The Lamar County School System receives Title IA and Title IIA funds as a part of latest Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) signed by President Obama in December of 2015. Title I is designed to support academic standards and provide resources to improve teaching and learning for low-achieving students. Title IA also provides funding to increase and improve parent involvement. Title IIA provides resources for recruitment, retention, and professional learning to enhance teacher and leader quality.

How? The Annual Parent Quality Survey is online for you to provide input. Survey results are used to help the district review what activities you deem important to help you as a parent and to make improvements for student success. Included in the survey are the opportunities to comment on the district’s Parent Involvement Policy, the Equity Plan, and the CLIP. The link to the survey is https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WM7GXNN. Click on “School Quality and Improvement Survey” and then answer the questions. You have access to the survey from Monday, May 2, 2016 to Wednesday, May 11, 2016 at 12:00 p.m.

If you do not have a computer or other digital device that allows you access to the Lamar County School System’s website, you may go to your child’s school, the local library or call Mrs. Amy Banks, System Coordinator of Parent Involvement, 770.358.5891.
