Hold an annual meeting to inform parents of the schools participation in Title I, Part A programs, and to explain the Title I, Part A requirements, and the right of parents to be involved in Title I, Part A programs. The school will convene the meeting at a convenient time to parents, and will offer a flexible number of additional parental involvement meetings, such as in the morning or evening, so that as many parents as possible are able to attend. The school will invite to this meeting all parents of children participating in Title I, Part A programs (participating students), and will encourage them to attend.

Provide to parents of participating children information in a timely manner about Title I, Part A programs that includes a description and explanation of the schools curriculum, the forms of academic assessment used to measure childrens progress, and the proficiency levels students are expected to meet.
