District Mission Statement

District and school-based Title I Parent Involvement Programs in Polk County will strive to build RELATIONSHIPS to create real family engagement for every child, every family, every teacher, every day. Title 1 Overview Components of Title 1 are:
  • Effective Instruction
  • Professional Development
  • Parental Involvement
Studies show that the more parents are involved in the education of their child, the more academically successful that child will be. The goal of the Title I Parent Involvement program is to give school-based Parent Involvement Facilitators information, materials and resources to enable them to provide for their parents at the school-level. It is the job of the Facilitator to give parents the tools and resources necessary for them to help their child at home. Everyone working together in this way gives the child the best possible support for doing well in school. Click the link below to go the District Title I Page

Parent Resources

There are many resources available on the internet that can help bridge the gap between parents and students today.

Research shows that when parents are directly involved with their children’s lives, their child will be more successful in school. Tenoroc High School’s Administration and Staff will continue to strive for excellence in educating your child and helping your child to reach his or her potential. The following websites may assist you in recognizing ways to become involved and engaged in your student’s education, and how you can make a difference in your student’s life as they progress through high school. http://www.schoolfamily.com/high-school http://www.kidsource.com http://www.parentsmart.com http://www2.ed.gov/parents/landing.jhtml
