(Read the complete Parent & Family Engagement Plan HERE)
(Plan de participación de los padres y la familia)

Finley Elementary is committed to providing all children a significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education. To this end, we want to establish partnerships with parents and with the community. Everyone gains if Finley Elementary and homes work together to provide activities and programs that promote children’s development, learning, and wellness. Parents play an extremely important role as children’s first teachers. Support for their children and for the school is critical to children’s success at every step along the way.
Finley Elementary recognizes that some students may need the extra assistance available through the Title I program to reach the state’s high academic standards. Finley Elementary intends to include parents in all aspects of the school’s Title I program. The goal is a school-home partnership that will help all students to succeed.
