School Improvement Plan & Title I Information
As a Title I school, parents have the right to request and receive information on the qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher and any teachers’ assistants who may work with your child.

Title I is a US Department of Education program
instituted under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.
This federal program provides funding
for improving academic achievement for the disadvantaged.
To become a Title I school and to use funds on a schoolwide basis,
at least 40 percent of its students must come from low-income families.
Funds are used to provide additional academic support and enrichment opportunities
to low-achieving students to help master the academic curriculum
and to meet state standards in core academic subjects.
("Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Educational Agencies (Title I, Part A)")
Title I schools must involve the parents of students to plan enrichment and interventions that will help their school meet improvement goals.
Each parent and student reads and signs a compact or contract
that indicates they are an active participant.
