“I Care” Meets & Exceeds No Child Left Behind Requirements

Title I recognizes the vital role that parents, guardians, and the community play in the education of children. Decades of research have confirmed that students with involved parents are more likely to succeed in school.

Six Federal Requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 [Section 1118, Subsection (e) Building Capacity for Involvement]

    “I Care” Character-Building Parenting Activities & Teacher Lesson Plans are aligned with national education subject area standards.

  2. Provide material and training to help parents work with their children to improve their children’s achievement, such as literacy training and using technology, to foster parent involvement.

  3. Educate school personnel, with the assistance of parents, in the value and utility of contributions of parents, how to reach, communicate, and work with parents.

    On-Site & Certified “I Care” Facilitator Trainings instruct teachers and school personnel on how to engage and effectively communicate with parents and form healthy relationships.
