Parent Involvement Program
Family Literacy Action Group
“FLAG” (Family Literacy Action Group) is an important component of Hancock County School’s parent involvement program. FLAG programs focus on providing parents with information on child development and child rearing. These programs will also provide practical strategies parents can apply at home to better help their child/children with reading and math skills.
The FLAG program will consist of several evening parent sessions. The first of these will be our beginning of the year “Kick-Off” meeting. This meeting will introduce parents to our county’s Title I program. In addition individual schools will provide packets to parents containing pertinent information about the Title I program (including parent surveys, etc.) in that school.
The Hancock County Title I staff will coordinate efforts and join talents in designing and implementing the FLAG program, with special attention given to parent concerns and suggestions. Meeting format will generally provide activities and grouping that involve parents, children, and parents working with their child/children. Outside presenters may also be included.
Students/families from all Title I schools and private schools will be included in our FLAG programs:
