    Proud to be a Title 1 School

    What is Title I?

    •  A Federal fund
    • Authorized by the No Child Left Behind Act (but began with the passage of the Elementary and Secondary Act of 1965)
    • Intention is to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach grade-level proficiency
    • To help students who are behind academically or at risk of falling behind
    • Only used to help students reach proficiency in academic subjects:  English Language Arts and Mathematics
    • Never replaces what all other students receive
    • Uses research based practices.

     

     How is Title I School Funding Determined?

    •  It is a federal entitlement program (non-competitive formula).
    • Allocated on the basis of student enrollment for ages 5-17, census poverty levels, and other data.
    • The U.S. Department of Education distributes these funds to State Education Agencies that in turn, distribute the funds to Local Education Agencies or school districts.
    • Local school districts allocate the funds to qualifying schools based on the number of children who receive free or reduced lunch in a school.

     

     Title I Must….

    • Involve parents in all phases of planning and provide opportunities for involvement and parent trainings.
    • Establish a compact between the parent and school outlining expectations
    • Establish a Title I Parent Involvement Policy. Share information with parents on their child’s progress and progress of the school toward the accomplishments of goals set forth in the plan.
    • Inform parents when schools have sanctions placed on them due to not meeting the Annual Yearly Progress standards.

    During the 2016-17 School Year, Title I funds will provide:

    •  Reading and Math interventionists
    • Parenting programs
