Title I Documents

Compact:  The parents, students, and staff of Building 2l partnered together to develop this school-parent compact for achievement on March 5, 2020. Parents are encouraged to attend annual revision meetings held in the Spring each year to review the compact and make suggestions based on student needs and school improvement goals. Parents are also encouraged to participate in the School Family Engagement survey that is also used as a tool to collect parent feedback regarding the current Title I programs, policies and family engagement.

Parent Engagement Policy:  In support of strengthening student academic achievement, Building 21 receives Title I, Part A funds and therefore must jointly develop with, agree on with, and distribute to parents and family members of participating children a written parent and family engagement policy that contains information required by section 1116(b) and (c) of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  The policy establishes the school’s expectations for parent and family engagement and describes how the school will implement a number of specific parent and family engagement activities, and it is incorporated into the school’s plan submitted to the local educational agency (LEA).

Right to Know Documents:  As required by the Every Student Succeeds Act [Section 1112(e)(1)(A)], the Federal law governing K-12 education in the United States, the School District of Philadelphia is required to provide the following Parent Right-to-Know Information.

ESSA requires that parents be notified at the beginning and/or when appropriate anytime during each year of their right to know the professional qualifications of their child’s teacher(s). Similar to the Right to Know letter, parents and families must also be notified when their child has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who has not met State certification or licensure requirements at the grade level and/or subject area in which the teacher has been assigned.
