Title I Notifications
Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended provides financial assistance to local educational agencies and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Federal funds are currently allocated through four statutory formulas that are based primarily on census poverty estimates and the cost of education in each state. Each year schools/districts are reviewed based upon these formulas and a determination is made regarding their Title I status.
Parent Involvement Requirement
Title I and ESEA regulations require schools to involve parents of public and private school students in school programs and in the education of their children. The parent involvement requirements for schools and districts serving students through Title I funds are:
- District Parent Involvement Policy (District Policy 1000 see pages 57-60)
- Academic Intervention Services (District Policy 4000 see pages 50-51)
- School/Parent Compact (District Policy 1000 see page 61)
- Homeless Children (District Policy 5000 see pages 15-19)
Title III, Part A:
Title III, Part A of the NCLB Act (SEC. 3102) was established to ensure that children who are limited English proficient, including immigrant children and youth, attain English proficiency, develop high levels of academic attainment in English, and meet the same challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards as all children are expected to meet. Federal funds are currently allocated on the basis of identified LEP students within the district. Each year schools/districts are reviewed based upon this criteria and funds are awarded accordingly.
