K.W. Barrett Elementary School is a Title 1 School in Arlington, VA.
Barrett families play an important role in your child’s education. Please join staff and other families on November 5, 2022 in the school cafeteria for our Annual Title I School-Family Partnership Meeting. We will:
- Get informed about Barrett’s Title I Program, how it supports your child’s academic success, and what opportunities exist for family participation, partnership and input.
- Collect input to review and revise our School-Family Partnership Principles.
You can preview the materials of the meeting, review the partnership principles, and take the survey on website URL in advance of the meeting.
FYI: Our second School-Family Partnership of the year will happen in the Spring and will most likely revolve around what we discuss in this November’s meeting. So, please join us if you tomorrow if you wish to have input in this meeting and in our Spring meeting.
Barrett families, please take a few moments to answer questions related to how our school can better engage with you in the coming school year. We value your input, so please help us out.
