Title I Information
How does my school qualify for Title I funds?
Schools must be identified by the district based on the precentage of free and reduced lunch eligable students.
How do I know if my child is receiving Title I services?
Parents need to contact their child’s teacher for specific information regarding individual student program services.
If my child changes schools, will my child continue to receive Title I services?
Only students at eligible Title I schools have access to services. Each school determines the criteria for identifying and providing services to students.
How does a school determine their use of Title I funds to design the school’s program?
Each school has a team made up of administrators, staff, and parents. This team determines program needs based on data from state and district testing. Programs are required to align with the school’s Unified Improvement Plan (UIP).
How does the District monitor and support the Title I programs at the schools?
The District Title I Staff supports the schools throughout the year. The purpose of this support is to provide program mentoring, technical assistance, and effective instructional delivery to ensure compliance with Title I regulations.
How do I find out about Title I at my school?
Every Title I school is required to have an Annual Meeting to explain the school’s Title I budget and school grade. Parents can also contact the school for information regarding Title I.
How can I be involved in decisions regarding the Title I program?
Every school has funds allocated for family engagement activities. By participating in these activities a parent can become more involved in the school’s educational goals and the educational outcomes for their child. We strongly encourage active Family Engagment!
