Title 1

A federally funded program designed to ensure that all students have an opportunity to access a high quality education. The program provides additional opportunities and resources for students to acquire the skills outlined in Ohio’s Learning Standards that all students are expected to meet. Title I eligible buildings are determined by federal requirements regarding the percentage of low-income children.

All buildings in the district are eligible to participate in school wide Title I programs . To receive Title I funding, a school district must submit a local improvement plan each year. Reviews and ongoing monitoring of the success of Title 1 building programs are conducted regularly by the state. Title I services include additional instructional supports, small group tutoring, and access to supplemental resources, in addition to the regular classroom instruction, to ensure all students achieve academic success. Family involvement is a key component to the success of the Title I program. Family involvement opportunities include: Annual Title I meeting, School-Family Compact, District and Building Parent Involvement Policy, district/building newsletters, parent-teacher conferences, family nights, volunteer programs, and building-specific events/activities. Additional information on parent resources and academic information is available at www.pta.org/parents.
