Parent Engagement Policy
Parent Engagement Policy
The staff at Academy Park Elementary School has always regarded parent involvement vital to the success of students achieving academic success. All schools have their individual characteristic and needs; Academy Park Elementary is not any different. Within our community there are many diverse cultures, languages, and students with special needs. We encourage parents and guardians to participate as school volunteers, in PTA and the Community Council.
- It is the intent that our communication with parents, such as materials or flyers, will be written in an understandable and uniform format and, to the extent practicable, provided in a language that is understandable. If anyone would like clarification, interpretation, or additional support, please contact the office 385-646-4750 for assistance. Each parent or guardian is highly encouraged to work directly with the teacher of the child to resolve any concerns.
- In order to accommodate our parents, an annual meeting will be scheduled where programs, curriculum, student academic and behavior expectations, parent concerns and input will be discussed. Near the end of the school year, a school survey will be sent to each home for input of how the parent or guardian perceived what was accomplished during the school year.
- A school-parent compact has been developed by the Academy Park Community Council, PTA and staff. A copy is available by contacting the office staff. The purpose of the compact is to increase each child’s academic achievement.

Parents' Right to Know
In compliance with the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act, Section 1112(e)(1)(A), this notification informs parents of their right to know the qualifications of their teachers and paraprofessionals.
As a parent of a student at a Title I school in Granite School District, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct your child. Federal law requires the school to provide you this information in a timely manner if you request it. Specifically, you have the right to request the following information about each of your child’s classroom teachers:
Whether the student’s teacher—
- has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
- is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived; and
- is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher.
- Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, his or her qualifications.
