Information shall explain how the student’s progress will be measured and how parents will be informed of such progress. This information shall also be provided to the school and district accountability committees.

2.5       Provide appropriate avenues for parents and community to find support in their roles.

2.6       Encourage formal organizations for parents at each school building as well as at the district level. The organizations shall receive information concerning district and school activities and shall have opportunities for input into district and school decisions as appropriate.
