  • Title I


    What Is A Title I School:

    Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) targets federal funds to high-poverty communities to provide compensatory educational services to low-achieving students. These funds are distributed by a poverty-based formula to approximately 90 percent of the school districts in the nation.

    Parent involvement has always been an integral part of Title I. Under the new Law, No Child Left Behind, one of the new purposes of Title I is to ensure that funds are used to promote parent involvement. Parents should take full advantage of the opportunities for involvement that the law provides.

    Title I Parent Involvement requires each Title I school to develop a written parental involvement policy that describes the means for carrying out the requirements of Section 1118. The school must ensure that information related to school and parent programs, meetings and other activities are sent to the parents of Title I children in a formal and in a language the parents can understand.

    The policy must be, developed jointly with and agreed on by parents, written in an understandable format and provided in a language parents can understand, and distributed to all parents.
