Parent Involvement Policy for Stoneville Elementary School - Title I School Wide Program
All parents at Stoneville Elementary School are invited to take a vital role in their child's education. The No Child Left Behind Act has required parents, educators, and the community to work together to ensure success for all students.
We strive to build a strong positive relationship between home, school, and community by providing the following:
