A message to parents/guardians of students at Lauderdale County High School:
Your child in enrolled in a Title I school within the Lauderdale County School System. Every year, we ask that parents/guardians take a few minutes of your time to complete an online parent survey and share your feedback with your child’s school personnel. We want to know about the efforts made by your child’s school personnel to help you feel welcome as a partner in the planning for your child’s education.
The purpose of the survey is to gather information from our Title I schools and use the information to help guide decisions for the following year. Survey results will provide your child’s school with answers about parent-school partnerships, transitions, and family training. Research shows that schools that maintain good partnerships with parents/families have better outcomes for the students they serve. The survey should take less than ten minutes to take and can be found on your school’s website, Facebook link, or Twitter. You will only need to complete one survey per family.
Your survey results will remain anonymous. Please complete the survey by April 30. Thank you in advance for your help with the surveys.
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires that each Title I School informs parents of the following:
- Your school's participation in Title I
- Requirements of Title I
- Your rights as parents to be involved
LCHS is a Schoolwide Title I School. In a schoolwide environment, all students and teachers may utilize any books, materials, software, etc. which are purchased with Title I funds.
Since LCHS is a Title I school, it receives federal funding (Title I dollars) to supplement the school's existing programs and parental involvement/parents' rights.
Any Local Education Agency, or LEA, with Title I Allocation exceeding $500,000 is required by law to set aside 1% of its Title I Allocation for parental involvement. Of that 1%, 5% may be reserved at the LEA for system-wide initiatives related to parental involvement. The remaining 95% must be allocated to all Title I schools in the LEA. Therefore, each Title I school receives its portion of the 95% to implement school-level parental involvement.
The LEA Title I Plan addresses how the LEA will use Title I funds throughout the school system. The Plan also addresses the implementation of the parental involvement requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Evaluation of the Plan is conducted annually.
The ACIP is our school's Continuous Improvement Plan. It addresses LCHS's implementation of the parental involvement requirements of the NCLB Act of 2001.
The School-Parent Compact is a commitment from the school, the parent, and the student to share in the responsibility for improved academic achievement.
You may request the qualification of your child's teachers at either the school office or the County Board of Education. LCHS teachers are all Highly Qualified.
Any ideas, suggestions, or comments may be given to the Parent Advisory Committee throughout the year. The Parent Advisory Committee for consists of the following members:
