    Solano Monthly News Letter

    Dear Parents,

                Happy Holidays!  As another year draws to a close, I find myself reflecting on the many accomplishments of our students.  Students have served as emcees at various school events and co-facilitated parent workshops with teachers. Recently, we hosted school tours for Leader in Me and all of the guests were amazed at the confidence that our Student Lighthouse team demonstrated as they led the tours. Visitors to our school often remark on just how well spoken and how poised our students are.

                In addition, our children have organized service projects to benefit the community and the world at large. I am humbled by the selflessness and commitment our students demonstrate.  Our children, with your assistance, have provided food for the hungry during the holidays. The We Club was able to collect over 500 canned goods for the homeless. They were also able to send $400 to Save the Children for the Indonesian Tsunami Relief.  They made so much money from the sale that they decided to send an additional $220 to the Red Cross for California Fire Relief. They didn’t do any of these things because they were told to or because they had to, they did it because they were compelled to. These were their ideas and their projects.  All of these accomplishments are evidence of students and staff embracing our mission statement of

    Learn Love Lead

    December will pass by quickly and then we will have our winter break. Three weeks is a long time for students to be away from the routine of school. Please help your children to retain the skills they are developing, by having them read at least 20 minutes each day and then explain what they have read. In addition, quiz your child on his/her math facts (simple addition, subtraction and multiplication) to keep his/her skills sharp. I appreciate your continued support and commitment to our students and school. On behalf of the entire Solano staff, I extend our sincere wishes for a joyous holiday season.

    ATTENDANCE:  Each Day Matters!  We all know that when students are not at school, they lose out on instruction and run the risk of falling behind.  Additionally, Solano loses money as a result to absences. This year we have already lost over $23,000 in potential funding.  When a child is ill, it is important that he or she stay home to recover.  However, it is important that absences are cleared with a note and that students come to school everyday. 

    SCHOOLWIDE POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTION AND SUPPORT PLANAs part of our School-wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Support Plan we have three expectations for everyone:  Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible.  Falling under each of these expectations are examples of appropriate behaviors that meet the expectation and are aligned to a specific area of the campus, such as the hallways or the playground.  Next time you are on campus look for the expectations posted throughout our school and take the time to talk with your child about them.
    SCHOOL - PARENT COMPACT AND PARENT AND FAMILY ENGAGEMENT POLICY:  Keep an eye out for the School-Parent Compact and the Parent and Family Engagement Policy.  Both documents were mailed to parents/guardians on November 30, 2018.  These important documents were edited and approved by the Solano School Site Council on Monday, November 26, 2018.

    FUNDRAISING FOR SOLANO: "Hello Parents! Amazon has changed the way we shop online, and many of us at Solano Avenue Elementary School hold accounts. Did you know that you can link your personal account to allow our SOLANO PTA and school to receive donations from Amazon at no cost to you? Doing so will allow Amazon to donate a small amount for each purchase through a program called "Smile" towards Solano Ave PTA! This is a great way for you to donate to the school's PTA at zero cost to you. Simply go to, login and search for "Solano"; our charitable organization will be near the top of the list. Simply assign "Solano Ave PTA" to receive your allotted donation and the rest is done by Amazon! Thank you all for your support."



    LAUSD Title i policy

    Please be on the look out for the District Title I Parent Involvement Policy , which was mailed out on Friday, November 30, 2018.

    Los Angeles Unified School District Title I Parent Involvement Policy

    1. LAUSD will involve parents in the joint development of the LAUSD Program Improvement Plan by inviting parents of Title I students to participate in Title I Parent Study Groups at each Educational Service Center (ESC), in the District’s Title I Focus Group, and in school level activities related to the LAUSD Program Improvement Plan, including budget and program development for all categorical programs. The District will also invite parents to participate in special training to support their understanding of the LAUSD Program Improvement Plan and the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). 

    2. LAUSD, through the Parent Community Student Services Branch (PCSB) and the Parent and Community Engagement (PACE) staff at each ESC, will provide the coordination, technical assistance, and other support necessary to assist Title I schools in planning and implementing effective parent involvement activities to improve student academic achievement and school performance. Staff from PACE and PCSB will develop tools and curriculum and will provide training to school staff in the following areas: School Goals for Parent Engagement Special assistance to targeted schools Capacity-building programs Partnership Action Teams School Volunteer Program

    3. LAUSD will build the schools’ and parents’ capacity for strong parental involvement by providing the training and tools necessary for schools to operate effective parent engagement programs from pre-school to 12th grade. Through PCSB and ESC PACE staff, the LAUSD will support school capacity-building initiatives through the following: Training for parents on District academic initiatives Parent and Family Center Improvement Program Training for school staff on how to support parent engagement

    4. LAUSD will coordinate and integrate the parental involvement strategies described in this policy with parental involvement strategies under other programs, including those managed by other LAUSD departments and or/units: Multilingual and Multicultural Education Division of Special Education Early Childhood Education Federal and State Education Programs Information Technology Division Office of the Chief Operating Officer Beyond the Bell Student Integration and School Choice Office of Data and Accountability

    5. LAUSD will conduct, with the involvement of parents, an annual evaluation of the content and effectiveness of the parental involvement policy in improving the academic quality of Title I schools, including identifying barriers to greater parent participation in Title I activities (with particular attention to parents who are economically disadvantaged, are disabled, have limited English proficiency, have limited literacy, or are of any racial or ethnic minority background). LAUSD will use the findings of such evaluation to design strategies for more effective parental involvement and to revise as needed, the District Title I Parent Involvement Policy. The District will utilize ESC Title I Parent Study Groups to examine the effectiveness of the parent engagement strategies and programs on student achievement at Title I schools.

    6. LAUSD will involve parents in the activities of Title I schools, will ensure schools communicate effectively with parents, welcome them as partners, and provide opportunities to help them support their children’s learning and achievement. LAUSD will ensure that parents are knowledgeable about student and school performance data, their rights and responsibilities, including their right to choose a school for their children, and how to support their children’s education.

    This is a summary of the LAUSD Title I Parent Involvement Policy passed in December of 2012. A hard copy of the entire policy may be requested at each school.
