H. E. CORLEY IS A TITLE ONE 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
- Professional Development for all teachers.
