Major state and federal education reform efforts emphasize the importance of family and community involvement to increase student achievement and strengthen public schools. State law requires parental involvement programs for schools that receive Title I funds (EC Section 11503) and parental involvement policies for non-Title I schools (EC Section 11504).
The federal Elementary and Secondary Education (ESEA) Act of 2001, section 1118, requires the adoption of (1) district- and school-level Title I parental involvement policies to support students in attaining high academic standards and (2) school-parent compacts that express the shared responsibilities of schools and parents as partners in students’ success.
