Title One Information

We strongly believe that parent involvement is a critical and necessary element to achieve student success. There are many opportunities for parents to become involved at Calavera Hills. Parent input is solicited and valued throughout the volunteer process with all committees. ELAC & PTA do an annual survey to ask parents how they would like to see programs run and funds used. Parents are always welcome to speak with Principal Fuentes about any question, comment, or concern. 

Parental Involvement

To follow are the standing committees where parents can provide input on spending, learn about the school budget, learn about the curriculum, and help the school achieve its goals:

Back to School Annual Meeting is held at the beginning of the school year. During this meeting the principal shares information about:

  • Title 1 school-wide programs
  • CHE's special program:  Project Lead the Way and its associated curriculum
  • Ways for parents to be involved in their child's education and the different types of activities on the calendar during the year.
  • Ways that students can achieve success & the indicators that success has been achieved
  • How the school will be communicating with parents
  • The collective agreement to be S.U.R.E:  safe, understanding, respectful, and put in our best effort.

School Site Council (SSC) is a committee formed of elected members of CHE's educational community. The principal, parents, community members, staff, & teachers come together to discuss:

  • Categorical funding such as Title I funds
  • Creating the budget based on school needs highlighting those funded by Title 1 funds.
  • Discuss the curriculum and technology used by students at the school that are funded by Title 1.
  • Create the Single Plan for Student Achievement

Art in Action- is an art program which provides to each classroom each month an in-depth study of a particular artist and his/her work. Two parents per classroom are needed to present each lesson as students learn about the artist and recreate a piece of that artist's work. You don't need to be an artist to join. Training is provided and will give you all the skills you need to teach a great art lesson.
