Title I

Title I is the first title in the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015. The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all students have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and assessments. Resources are distributed to schools where needs are the greatest. Title I coordinates services with other educational agencies such as health and social services programs. Additionally, Title I provides greater decision making authority and flexibility within the schools and for teachers.


Parent involvement is an essential component of Title I. Strong partnerships between the home and the school is a key factor in student success. Every Title I school allocates a portion of its funds for improving parent involvement within the school. Each school develops a parent involvement policy and a school-parent compact that outline expectations and opportunities for including parents in the education of their children. Parents are included on the planning team and are offered the opportunity to give feedback on the school's Title I plan. If you would to participate on the Title I planning team at your child's school, please contact the school office.
