Title 1 NCLB

STEP Academy is committed to the goal of providing quality education for every child in our school. To this end, we want to establish partnerships with parents and with the Community. Everyone gains if school and home work together to promote high achievement by our children. Neither home nor school can do the job alone. Parents play an extremely important role as children’s first teachers. Their support for their children and for the school is critical to their children’s success at every step along the way.

  • STEP Academy will incorporate the Parent Involvement Plan into its school plan.
  • In carrying out the Title I parent involvement requirements, to the extent practicable, STEP Academy will provide full opportunities for the participation of parents with children with limited English proficiency, parents with children with disabilities, and parents of migratory children, including providing information and school reports in an understandable and uniform format and, including alternative formats upon request, and, to the extent practicable, in a language parents understand.
