 District Mission Statement

District and school-based Title I Parent Involvement Programs in Polk County will strive to build RELATIONSHIPS to create real family engagement for every child, every family, every teacher, every day.

Title I Parent Overview

The goal of Title I is to improve student achievement through effective instruction, professional development, and family involvement. Parent involvement means the participation of parents in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities. Additional information can be found in the School Improvement Plan (SIP).

Bartow Middle Parent Compact

This is an agreement between the school, parents, and student explaining how the responsibility will be shared to improve student achievement. Each parent/guardian should review the compact with their child. A parent or guardian and the student are required to sign and date the compact. After signing, please have your child return the compact to his/her first period teacher or to the Title I Office.
