Title 1 Schoolwide Program
The Title 1 Schoolwide Program helps us increase the academic achievement of students by providing additional services to students. To accomplish our goals the school and the district use student assessment data to determine areas of need and outline a plan for addressing student needs. We structure professional development activities to support the needs, we connect the school with parents and the community, and we formulate an evaluation plan to monitor the progress of our efforts.
As a school that receives federal Title I funds we must meet some specific federal rules. These include providing information to families regarding teacher and Para Educator qualifications, parent involvement, and schoolwide planning.
Parents’ Right-to-Know — Student Achievement
We provide every parent with information that describes the level of academic achievement reached by their child. This information provides the child’s achievement on state and district assessments and is sent home formally in June. We strive to communicate throughout the school year in multiple ways regarding student achievement and learning progress.
School’s Written Family Involvement Policy
We have a written parent involvement policy outlining how we work together as a school community to support all of our students, staff, and families. The current Parent Involvement Policy can be requested at your school, Also, you may view it on our School Webpage at your web page link to schools family Involvement Policy.
Title I, Part A Meeting
We invite parents to learn more about Title I, Part A programs operating at our school by attending school and district meetings throughout the year. In the Spring we host a meeting where we explain the requirements of this federal program and let parents know they have a right to be involved in school program activities funded by Title I, Part A.
Parents’ Right-to-Know — Highly-qualified Teachers
We provide timely notice to every parent if a teacher who is not highly qualified has been assigned or has taught their child for four or more consecutive weeks. All of our teachers meet the federal highly qualified status. In addition, our Para Educators working with children on academic support also meet the required federal highly qualified requirements.
School-Parent Compact— Shared Responsibility
We work together, families and the school, to share in the responsibility of the high-quality education for each child. Working closely with the parents of children who receive Title I, Part A services we create School-Parent Compacts each year. This compact takes the form of a written agreement that identifies shared responsibilities that parents, school staff, and students carry out to improve academic achievement.
