Family Engagement - Title I Information
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 attend an event. Perry Middle School hosts activities throughout the year building strong family engagement which supports a partnership among the school, families and the community to improve student academic achievement. Perry Middle believes that family engagement is the participation of families in all areas of their children’s education and development, recognizing that families are the primary influence in their children’s lives. Check Perry Middle's social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), the school sign, and call-outs for the most current information on school events. We look forward to seeing you and hope you feel comfortable as you visit.

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 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 families help their children to succeed (family engagement). All Title I schools must include stakeholder (family, teacher, student) input in the development of a written Family Engagement policy.
Panther Parents is one way for families to give their input. Perry Middle School invites all families to be part of Panther Parents to share ideas and help build partnerships with school, families and the community. Panther Parents works with our staff to develop our yearly family activities and Title I documents such as the Family Engagement Plan and School-Parent Compact. We meet twice a year, but ideas and suggestions are always welcome. If you would like to learn more about Panther Parents, please contact Chandra Young, Family Engagement Coordinator, at the above phone number or email.
Give us FEEDBACK/COMMENTS
We welcome your input, including comments and feedback, on our school and our programs at any time during the year. Please contact Chandra Young, Family Engagement Coordinator, at the above phone number or email to share your thoughts.
