Family Engagement Policy

Family Engagement Policy

2017-2018


At Enka Intermediate, we believe in a strong partnership with all stakeholders in the school community.  It is the belief at Enka that when we have strong collaboration with the parents and community, there is a direct and positive impact on the student population.  Collaboration with Enka stakeholders will be conducted through various forms of communication that aid in the increase of parental involvement. The relationship with families is critical throughout the child’s academic career and parents must be given an opportunity to take an active role in the education of their child.  Our goal is to build and foster a partnership that will support the social, emotional, and academic development of all students at Enka Intermediate.


The Family Engagement Policy and Plan will be reviewed each school year by the School Improvement Team, School Advisory Council, and PTO Board.  In future years it will also be reviewed at the Title I Annual Meeting and Open House.  Parents are encouraged to take an active role in their child’s education through one or many of the following activities:

  • Participate in PTO

  • Attend parent-teacher conferences

  • Volunteer in our school volunteer program

  • Maintain contact between the school and home  through various forms of communication
