Welcome to our Family Engagement/Title I Information Page
We welcome you into our school, whether it’s to eat lunch with your child, for a parent-teacher conference, to volunteer or to participate in a workshop. Perry Middle School hosts events throughout the year to build strong family engagement to support a partnership among the school, families and the community to improve student academic achievement. We encourage you to come to as many events as possible. The school website, Facebook, the school sign, and call-outs will have the most current information.
Title I Information
Perry Middle is a Title I School. We are eligible for Title I funding based on our percentage of students eligible for free and reduced lunch. This means that we receive additional federal funds for the purpose of improving teaching and learning for students. All students in our school benefit from these funds. Title I requires that these funds be used for programs that will improve student achievement and include ways to help parents help their children to succeed (parent engagement). All Title I schools must include parent input in the development of a written Parent Engagement policy.
