Parents Right to Be Informed

The Title I, Part A Program makes it possible to expand the basic educational programs schools and districts offer with services and interventions that support struggling learners. There are four key requirements of a Title I,

Part A Program:

  1. Professional qualifications of teachers and paraprofessionals who instruct.
  2. Notification if your child’s teacher is not highly qualified.
  3. Inpidual report card that lets you know how your child is progressing.
  4. Notification that the school has implemented a school improvement plan.

How Are Parents Involved in Title I Schools?

Every district has a family involvement policy that describes different ways that families can be involved in the Title I program:

  1. Parenting
  2. Communicating
  3. Volunteering
  4. Learning at Home
  5. Decision Making
  6. Collaborating with the community.

A district Parent Advisory Committee meets throughout the year to plan, evaluate, and review the Title I program. Representatives from each Title I building participate in this forum. Every attempt is made to reach our to all parents and families.
