General Program Information
 
Title I is the largest federal aid program for public schools.  This program provides additional funds for educating disadvantaged or underserved children.  These funds are specifically designated to assist children in meeting the Common Core State Standards.
 
Goal:  Title I is the federal government's commitment to closing the achievement gap between low-income and moderate-to-high-income students.  Our goal is to assist disadvantaged and underserved students to meet the Common Core State Standards. 
 
Each school within a district is designated as a Title I school if certain criteria are met.  If criteria are met, then a Title I school is provided with additional funding.  This funding can be used to:
  • Provide intervention reading and mathematics programs.
  • Provide before school, after school, or intersession programs.
  • Hire highly qualified certified staff, such as reading specialists or instructional coaches
  • Hire highly qualified support staff, such as paraprofessionals or parent liaisons.
  • Support family engagement by providing site parent liaisons and family resource centers.
  • Provide professional development for families, teachers, and support staff.
  • Purchase supplemental instructional supplies and materials.
Requirements
 
Title I schools are required to provide families with policy and program information. Schools inform families by:
  • Holding an annual meeting to explain Title I policy and programs.
  • Providing families with up-to-date academic information about their children in an easy to understand format.
  • Offering families a flexible number of meetings on Title I policy and programs.
  • Involving families in the decision making process on how family involvement dollars are spent.
  • Providing families with a compact entered by the school, the parent, and the child acknowledging responsibility for student success.
