Parent's Rights & Responsibilities

The following documents can also be found included in the NPSB District Handbook. They are extracted and provided here for your convenience.



Excerpt: In support of strengthening student academic achievement, Natchitoches Parish School Board agreed on with, and distributed to, parents of participating children a written parental involvement policy containing information required by section 1118(a)(2) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) (district wide parental involvement policy). The policy establishes the Natchitoches Parish School Board expectations for parental involvement and describes how the district will implement a number of specific parental involvement activities, is incorporated into the Natchitoches Parish Schools consolidated plan submitted to the Louisiana Department of Education, and distributed to parents in the Natchitoches Parish School Board Student/Parent Handbook.



Excerpt: The 2001 reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act makes it clearer than ever that parents are the key stakeholders in their children's education. The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) imposes numerous new mandates requiring states, districts and schools to answer to parents for a failure to improve schools. NCLB brought forth a whole new provision known as "Parents Right to Know". This provision requires Natchitoches Parish School Board to notify parents of all children in Title I schools that they have the right to request and receive timely information on the professional qualifications of their children's classroom teachers. It must be emphasized that this requirement applies to all children in the school - whether or not they receive identifiable Title I services – and it applies to all Title I schools.
