I want the parents to have the opportunity to participate with their kids in these different things. But in the past, we were what they called a targeted-assistance district for Title 1, so at that time, when we did family engagement, it was really targeted on certain people. As the grant has opened up into school-wide, we’re able to fill these events out to involve more families. Q: So, this is for all families, not just targeted families? A: Yes, this is for all families. We’re trying to make sure that all of our families in town know about the resources that are available to them, and that’s why we are really highlight505 Broadway Everett, MA 02149 Tel: 617-387-1120 www.gkdental.com • Family Dentistry • Crowns • Bridges • Veneers/Lumineers • Dental Implants • All on 4 Dental Implants • Emergency Dentist • Kid Friendly Dentist • Root Canals • Dentures • Invisalign Braces • Snap On Smile • Teeth Whitening We are the smile care experts for your entire family ing the library. My personal opinion – public libraries go a long way to be an equalizing force for students in their education. Sometimes, the library provides resources (obviously books) that provide Internet access to help students gain access to information, which is really important. And Title 1 is really about making sure that we are doing what we can. Q: Is this program something that all school districts are involved in? A: All school districts that reIn House Dental Plan for $399 (Cleanings, X-Rays, Exams twice a year and 20% OFF Dental work) Schedule your FREE Consultations today ceive Title 1 funds do family engagement. Title 1 funds come from the federal government. They go from the federal government to the State of Massachusetts, and they get divided out to the different school districts in Massachusetts, based primarily on size and economic demographics. And most school districts in the state receive some level of Title 1 funds. Obviously, your larger districts, they are going to generally receive more. But everyone who gets Title 1 funds, they do some level of family engagement and outreach, because I think that the federal and state governments understand that the parent involvement in their child’s education is crucial, so helping build that bridge between the school and the parents and families is an important part of the program. But everybody does it in a different way. This is the way that we have been doing it, and looking at it an hour into the program, I think it’s something we’re going to continue. Parents look happy, kids look happy and it seems like it’s been a great night. And we’ll start to think about some of the other events we can add along the way to complement this in the future. I’ve begun to have talks with people in other districts about things that they do to really build that schoolhome connection. Q: So, how many students did you expect here tonight? A: We estimated based on last year that we would have more than 100 students participate tonight, so I monitored how many kids were coming in. I ran off 150 copies of these sheets. For all of the students participating, they have to have one of the sheets. I am estimating around 120130 students participated. I printed 150 sheets, and only came back with about 10; however, I want to account for students who needed a second, or parents who took one – in all, a very successful night. Q: So, please tell me about the sheets. A: The sheets are for Literacy and Math Tic-Tac-Toe! The students visit at least three stations on their board to get three in a row. One they complete a station, they get stamped by a Title 1 teacher. Q: What are the stations that the students go to? A: There are nine stations. There’s bookmark making, math facts craft, exploring the new books and summer books section, tangram puzzles, spring poetry, math card games, one to read your new book with your grown-up, one for checking out the collection of e-books and one for building your own story. Q: So, did you get an idea from tonight? Did parents come up to you and make suggestions, like “Why don’t you guys do this”? A: No, nobody has come up to me with ideas yet. Most of them are at the stations with Title 1 teachers.
