    What is Title I?

     

    • Title I is a federal aid program for schools. The goal of Title I is to ensure a high-quality education for every child, by providing extra help to students who need it most.

    • Title I funds are distributed to districts and individual schools based on the number of low-income families served. However, once a school qualifies for Title I funds, academic needs, not economic status, determines which students receive extra services.

     

    Title I has three primary objectives:

    • to improve student achievement

    • to improve staff development

    • to improve parental and community involvement

     

     

    How you can help:

     

    Participate in your child’s education by:

    • attending school events 

    • talking about homework with your child 

    • showing your child how homework relates to daily life

    •  joining the school’s Parent Teacher Organization

    Be aware of your child’s performance by:

    • attending parent-teacher conferences 

    • requesting additional meetings, if needed 

    • keeping teachers informed about events and issues that may affect your child’s work or behavior

    Listen and Learn with Audio Books

    Audio books are a wonderful way to expose your child to complex language, expressive reading, and fantastic stories. Listening to audio books also gives kids the valuable and enjoyable experience of using their own imaginations to visualize the people and places they’re hearing about.
