Family Engagement Policy

Friends on a field trip and smiling

In support of strengthening student academic achievement, Petal School District receives Title I, Part A funds and therefore must jointly develop with, agree on with and distribute to parents and family members of participating children a written parent and family engagement policy that contains information required by Section 1116(a)(2) of Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The policy establishes the LEA’s expectations and objectives for meaningful parent and family engagement and describes how the LEA will implement several specific parent and family engagement activities, and it is incorporated into the LEA’s plan submitted to the Mississippi Department of Education.
