Be proactive. Conduct a PIP and School-Parent Compact Review Meeting for parents and staff,before the 2013-2014 school year ends, in order to compile evidences of parent input in the development of the PIP and the Parent-School Compact for the 2014-2015 school year.Schools should begin the review/evaluation process for the Title I program as a whole and the PIP, at this time. Schools should begin to gather all of their plans (e.g. PIP, School-Parent Compact, and the School Improvement Plan (SIP) and take them to their parent groups for input into the changes that need to be made for the next year. Identify barriers which could have hindered participation by parents in parental involvement activities during the 2013-2014 school year, and the steps the school will take to overcome the identified barriers. Further, when reviewing the school’s 2013-2014 PIP, results from the school’s M-DCPS Title I Parent/Family Involvement Survey should be utilized with revisions.
