Title 1

What is Title 1?

The purpose of Title I is to support school efforts to ensure that all children meet challenging academic standards and have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education. 

Funding is given as a resource to schools based on their number of disadvantaged students (usually determined by free & reduced lunch numbers).  This funding is used to benefit all students in the school.

This resource allows students to focus on promoting programs to help and support students, especially students that fall within the at-risk range the school is focusing on.

Parents’ Right to Know

  • Parents have the right to request and receive timely information regarding the professional qualifications of their child’s teachers and paraprofessionals.
  • Parents must be notified if their child is assigned to, or taught, for four (4) or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who does not meet state certification requirements for the grade level or subject area taught.
  • Parents should be provided information regarding the level of achievement of their child on State required academic assessments.
  • When possible, information must be in a language that parents can understand.
