                            Parent Involvement Policy 2010-2011

    Collins will provide an environment that encourages parental involvement in their child’s educational
development. Parents of Collins’ students will be encouraged to participate in school-wide activities and will be kept
informed about their child’s progress. It is through close cooperation between the school and home that a student’s
academic success will improve. Two-way communication, both verbal and written, provides a sound base for a good
partnership between the school and home to provide an effective educational program for all students. Parents and
school have agreed on and developed the following Parent Involvement Policy for Collins Elementary. A copy of
this policy will be included in the school newsletter and on the school web page. Any additional suggestions will be
considered for future revision.
