At Metro Schools, we value the partnership of staff and families in the education of our students. At the first PTSA meeting of each school year, we will discuss Title I and parent engagement plans for the year and invite parents to attend and remain involved.
As the parent or guardian of a student attending a school that receives Title I funding, you have the right to know about the teaching qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher. At any time, you may ask the following about teacher licensure and credentialing:
If state qualifications and certification requirements for the grade and subject were met
If an emergency or conditional certificate has been issued
The undergraduate or graduate degrees the teacher holds, including graduate certificates and additional degrees, major(s) or area(s) of concentration.
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which was signed into law in December 2015 and reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1956 (ESEA), includes additional right to know requests. At any time, parents or guardians can request:
Information on policies regarding student participation in assessments and procedures for opting out
Information on required assessments that include:
Subject matter tested
Purpose of the test
Time and format of disseminating results
Amount of time it takes students to complete the test

This plan is developed in partnership with parents, the PTSA Executive Board and teachers. The plan is intended to identify the following:

Support for academic efforts of children

Metro Schools is committed educating all students towards college and career readiness. Utilizing a mastery, STEM-centric curriculum, Metro students experience opportunities to learn through a relevant school curriculum and then enroll in college coursework through Columbus State Community College or The Ohio State University. Metro has a graduation rate between 93-100% (as some students have used a 5th year option) and 100% are admitted to college.
Metro Schools will reach out to all parents and family members and implement programs, activities, and procedures for the involvement of parents and family members in programs consistent with the requirements of ESSA Section 1116. Such programs, activities, and procedures shall be planned and implemented with meaningful consultation with parents of participating children. Section 1116 (a)(1)
Each year, Metro will collect data from families (anecdotal, email and survey) to gather information about our program. This data will then be discussed and utilized to develop the Parent Engagement Plan for the subsequent school year. The newly created plan will be presented to our families during the first regularly scheduled PTSA meeting of the school year or as soon thereafter as possible.
Metro School receives Title I, Part A funds. Our goal is to plan and implement effective parent and family involvement activities to improve student academic achievement and school performance. Therefore, we will develop jointly with, agree on with, and distribute to parents and family members of participating children a written parent and family engagement policy. Section 1116 (a)(2)
Parent Engagement Opportunities will be scheduled throughout the school year.
Yearly Title I meetings will host a translator (or be sent out for online translation).
The annual meeting will go over the yearly plan, parent compact, teacher licensure and the plan to utilize Title I funds. The Title I Annual Meeting will be held during or shortly after the first regularly scheduled PTSA meeting of the school year.
