Title 1

Title I, Part A is a federal program designed "to provide all children significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high quality education, and to close achievement gaps." It does this by providing funding and supporting the school improvement process. It is guided by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

Title I, Part A can support early learning and kindergarten through grade 12. These programs and services provide customized instruction and curriculum that helps students meet academic standards and take an active, engaged interest in what they learn and can do. As the largest and oldest federal education program, Title I, Part A programs build equity of opportunity for children whose struggles often keep them on the academic sidelines.

What can Title I, Part A do for our district?

Funding from the Title I, Part A program has provided support for our preschool program, intervention specialists, para-educator support, parent and family engagement activities, after school services, summer reading programs, professional development for teachers and para-educators, and a variety of other activities, materials, and staff, all geared toward increasing student success.

Who benefits from Title I, Part A supports?

As a schoolwide program, all students can access the benefits of this program. The goal is to improve the entire educational program of the school in order to raise the achievement of the lowest-achieving students. This means some services will be provided directly to struggling students, while others will support improvements that affect all students.

What can I do to support my child's success?

Get involved! Students with involved parents are more likely to get good grades, take challenging classes, have better attendance, and graduate from high school.

  • Communicate with your child's teacher and school staff; share what you know about your child as a learner and a person.
  • Attend parent-teacher conferences.
  • Give your child a quiet place to study at home.
  • Get to know the kinds of help the school can provide and do what you can to connect your child to those services.
  • Read to your child or let them read to you.
  • Help your child get to school every day, on time, rested and ready to learn!
