The Title I program for parents is designed to

2) provide literacy training,

4) offer parents training in schools and in the  
     community on ways to work with their   
     children at home to raise student  
 5) encourage active participation in their
     children’s schools and education.
Public Law 103-382 requires:
All Title I schools to develop jointly, with parents of participating children, and Parental Involvement Plan and a parent-student-teacher compact (written agreement) that states what parents, students, and the school will do together to raise student achievement.
Schools must sponsor an annual meeting for all Title I parents and involve parents in an “organized, ongoing, and timely way” in the planning, review, and improvement of Title I schools.
Each Title I school utilizes a percentage of its Title I allocation to support a comprehensive parental involvement program. The School Advisory Council provides input in determining how Title I funds are used.

What Parents Should Know About TITLE 1

The Goal of Title I is to improve
student achievement through Effective Instruction
Professional DevelopmentFamily Involvement


Schoolwide Projects

Where we came from…….
TITLE I is the largest program of federal funding in education, signed into law in 1965 by President Lyndon Johnson. President Johnson recognized the extremely difficult
problem that children throughout the country were having with their reading and mathematics. In an effort to help them catch up, extra attention, materials and teachers were provided by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title I (ESEA).
On December 2001, President Bush signed into law the “No Child Left Behind Act”.

Where we are…….
The TITLE I law requires the meaningful involvement of parents in school level planning,  
development, and design of initiatives to improve student achievement supported by Title I funds.

The purpose of Title I is to assist schools in improving student achievement, staff development and parental involvement. All public schools receiving Title I funds are district schools operating as Schoolwide Programs. Title I funds enhance the regular district instructional program. Title I funds may be used to:
Add highly qualified staff.
Support parent and community involvement efforts,
Improve staff development,
Purchase additional instructional materials and supplies
Add technology and needed equipment
Provide free tutoring, Supplementary Education Services (SES), to eligible students.
