Parent and Family Engagement Policy
2022 - 23
ESSA Section 1116
In Eanes ISD, the mission is to unite, empower and inspire every person, every day. We believe we must unite our community through respectful relationships, creating a sense of belonging for all. Additionally, we must empower students by providing an
exemplary education that develops curiosity, creativity, and individual talents, and we should inspire each other to lead purposeful lives of empathy, gratitude and compassion.
One way we can do this is by participating in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Title I, Part A Program. This program provides funding for schools to support students considered to be economically disadvantaged by criteria set forth through the Texas Education Agency (TEA). Additionally, we receive funding through other federal grants to support our emergent bilingual population as well as students receiving special education services. Currently, the Title I Part A funds received by Eanes ISD are allocated to provide supplemental services, in terms of additional Campus Support Specialists, to the two elementary campuses with the highest percentage of students considered economically disadvantaged.
In return, we promise to meet the expectations laid out for us by the Texas Education Agency and the United States Department of Education. The elements outlined in this Parent and Family Engagement (PFE) Policy will help us achieve our mission, creating partnerships with parents/guardians and families and creating opportunities for success for our students.
