    Family Engagement Plan 2020-2021

    Flat Rock is a School Wide Title 1 Program which means ALL students can receive additional services. No student identification is made that renders them eligible or ineligible for services.  The program promotes improved instruction for all students and constitutes comprehensive school reform and strategies through the following:

    • Provides Opportunities for all children to meet proficient and advanced levels of student academic achievement
    • Strengthens the core academic program
    • Increases the amount of learning time
    • Includes strategies to address the needs of all students in the school, but particularly low achieving students and those at risk of not meeting state standards
    • High qualified teachers in all core content area classes
    • Strategies to increase parental involvement, such as literary services

    School wide programs provide staff and parent involvement in program planning and evaluation.  Additionally, academic involvement, required parent involvement activities and family literacy. 

    Family and School Compact

    The compact describes the role of the student, parent, and the school.  It is distributed the first week of school and is designed to ensure the academic success of the student by ensuring accountability upon signature.  It is created with input from parents and educators and reviewed annually at the Title 1 stakeholders meeting for changes.

    This Title 1 compact outlines how the parents, the entire school staff, and the students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement as well as how the school and parents will build and develop a partnership that will help children achieve the state’s high standards. It is of the utmost importance that communication between teachers and parents take place on an ongoing basis in the form of conferences and/or progress reports.  

    Title 1 - SOAR Sessions Program

    We will continue to have our SOAR Sessions Program for Reading and Math in the Spring of 2021.Teachers in these courses meet the student’s instructional needs through strategies such as remediation and acceleration using a variety of supplemental activities including, but not limited to GA Milestones Coach resources, USATestPrep, IXL, Study Island, etc.
