The Board of Education introduced a new policy regarding parent involvement during its Feb. 28 meeting. Following its policies audit last summer, the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education (CABE) recommended the Wilton school district address \u201cmandated policies that are absent from [its] books,\u201d explained Superintendent Kevin Smith. The parent policy was one of them. \u201cIt\u2019s a fairly straightforward policy that just speaks to our desire to engage in partnership with parents and families and to create opportunities to do that,\u201d Smith said. \u201cThe Board of Education recognizes that a child\u2019s education is a responsibility shared by the school and family during the period the child spends in school,\u201d the policy states, and \u201cengaging parents is essential to improved student achievement.\u201d Basically, Smith said, the new policy \u201cis kind of codifying what our commitment is to our families.\u201d The board will vote whether or not to approve the policy during its next meeting on Thursday, March 9, 7 p.m., in the Wilton High School Professional Library.
