Significant family involvement is vital to the success of any Title I program. Odyssey is committed to the partnership between the school, families, and the community. Through that partnership, we are also committed to improve student achievement. We will help build the capacity of our families by providing training workshops and informational materials so that we can all share the responsibility for student academic achievement.
Workshop subjects have included:
- Internet Safety and Copyright Piracy: Session covers how Odyssey keeps our students safe while using technology at school, the dangers of copyright piracy, and many resources for families to use at home.
- Georgia Milestones Assessment: Session covers what the assessment is, what it covers, how it is taken, and tips for parents on how to help their students be successful during testing.
Families are also invited throughout the year to participate in Academic Parent-Teacher Teams (APTT) and Student Led Conferences to share data, learn skills, and receive materials to use at home to build their student’s academic achievement.
Parent Involvement also means Parent Input!
Families are able to offer suggestions and participate in decisions relating to the education of their children through surveys, input meetings, and focus groups. Families must be involved in the development of the School Improvement Plan, Parent Involvement Policy, Title I Consolidated Application, Parental Involvement Budget, and School-Parent Compact.
