Title 1 Learning Policy & Compact – Please sign & Return

Did you know that your child attends a Title 1 school?

What is Title I?

Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) provides financial assistance to states and school districts to meet the needs of educationally at-risk students. The goal of Title I is to provide extra instructional services and activities which support students identified as failing or most at risk of failing the state’s challenging performance standards in mathematics, reading, and writing.

What will Title I do for my child?
The Title I program will provide your student with extra educational assistance beyond the regular classroom.

What do Title I programs offer?
Title I programs generally offer:

  • Smaller classes or special instructional spaces
  • Additional teachers and aides
  • Opportunities for professional development for school staff
  • Extra time for teaching Title I students the skills they need
  • A variety of supplementary teaching methods
  • An individualized program for students
  • Additional teaching materials which supplement a student’s regular instruction

Our annual Title 1 Learning Policy & Compact will be coming home with students on Monday, August 13th. Please sign and return (student & parent) to school on Tuesday so your child’s teacher and Mr. Cooper can sign these forms as well!
