What is the purpose of Title I?
According to the U.S. Department of Education the purpose of Title I funding, "is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach, at minimum, profiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.
Types of students that might be served by Title I funds include migrant students, students with limited English proficiency, homeless students, students with disabilities, neglected students, deliquent students, at-risk students or any student in need. Students can be classified as at-risk for numerous reasons. A few reasons they might be classified as at-risk are: high number of absences, single-parent home, low academic performance or low-income family and free-reduced lunch program.
Research shows that when parents are involved, students have:
* Higher grades, test scores, and graduation rates
* Better school attendance
* Increased motivation, better self esteem
* Lower rates of suspension
* Decreased use of drugs and alcohol
* Fewer instances of violent behavior
I am excited for the upcoming year. I will also need your help in taking time to come to our meetings and also volunteering at our school. Our school is parent friendly and we welcome you.
