Title I Overview
Title I is the largest program of federal funding in education signed into law in 1965 by President Lyndon Johnson. President Johnson recognized the extremely difficult problem that children throughout the country were having with their reading and mathematics. In an effort to help them catch up, extra attention, materials and teachers were provided by the Elementary Secondary Education Act, Title I (ESEA). On December 2001, President Bush signed into law the “No Child Left Behind Act”.
The Title I law requires the meaningful involvement of parents in school level planning, development and design of initiatives to improve student achievement supported by Title I funds.
Our school’s Title I Parent Involvement Policy/Plan was developed following our review of the results from the School Climate Perception Survey. The survey is completed each spring by parents, staff, and students to provide an opportunity for them to share their opinions.
