Districts must develop jointly with, annually evaluate with, and distribute to parents/guardians of Title I students (or, in the case of School wide programs, all students) a written parent/guardian involvement policy. The policy establishes the district's expectations for parent/guardian involvement, and describes how the district will involve parents/guardians in developing the district/school improvement plan and in reviewing school performance; provide support to assist the Title I program in planning and implementing effective parent/guardian involvement activities to improve student achievement; build the school’s and parents/guardians" capacity for strong involvement; and coordinate and integrate parent/guardian involvement strategies with other programs.
Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School has developed and agreed upon this parent involvement policy in consultation with teachers, principals, program administrators, and parents/guardians/guardians of all students.
Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School welcomes the participation of parents/guardians in support of student learning and recognizes that parental involvement increases the opportunities for student success. It is the policy of Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School to foster and maintain ongoing communications with parents/guardians concerning their opportunities for involvement, their students’ eligibility for special programs, their students’ educational progress, the professional qualifications of their students’ teachers, and the status of the students’ school. Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School strives to provide such information in an understandable and uniform format, including alternative formats upon request, and, to the extent practicable, in a language that parents/guardians can understand. To the extent practicable, Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School shall provide full opportunities for the participation of parents/guardians with limited English proficiency, parents/guardians with disabilities and parents/guardians of migratory children, including providing information and school reports in a format and language such parents/guardians understand. Communications with parents/guardians shall, at all times, respect the privacy of students and their families.
It is the policy of Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School to consult parents/guardians, teachers, principals and program administrators of federally funded programs in the development and revision of the district's consolidated application for federal funds and in the process of school review and improvement. The process of school review includes timely publication and dissemination of the results of its annual progress report to parents/guardians, teachers, principals, and the school community.
Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School will notify parents/guardians of participating children at the beginning of each school year that they may request and the district will provide information on the professional qualifications of their child's classroom teachers and whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

To ensure the effectiveness of this parent involvement policy, Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School conducts, with the involvement of parents/guardians, an annual evaluation of its parent involvement policy in improving the academic quality of the school, including identifying barriers to greater participation by parents/guardians in activities funded by Title I and Title IIA grant programs. This evaluation will focus particular attention on parents/guardians who are economically disadvantaged, are disabled, have limited English proficiency, have limited literacy, or are of any racial or ethnic minority background. Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School will use the findings of this evaluation to design strategies for more effective parental involvement, and to revise, if necessary, the parental involvement policies described herein.
It is the policy of Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School to involve parents/guardians in the activities by monitoring to assure that the school will:
As a component of the school-level parental involvement policy, the school develops a school-parent compact that outlines how parent, the entire school staff, and students share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parents/guardians will build and develop a partnership to help students achieve the State's high standards.
