What is TITLE I?
Title I is a federally funded program which enables schools to provide opportunities for children served to acquire knowledge and skills contained in the challenging state content standards (TEKS) and to meet the challenging state performance standards (STAAR) developed for all children.
TIA 11: Parent Notification
Evidence that each campus provided to each individual parent information on (1) parent’s right to request professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teachers, (2) level of achievement of their child on state academic assessments, and (3) timely notice if their child is being taught by a non-highly qualified teacher for four or more consecutive weeks.
What is a School-Parent Compact?
Our campus’ compact must outline the means by which the school and parents will build and develop partnership to help children achieve the State’s high standards.
In a compact, families and school staff agree how to work together. Everyone “owns” the responsibility of helping children achieve high academic standards.
What is a Written Parent & Family Engagement Policy?
Our campus should have a written parental involvement policy that explains how the campus supports the important role of parents in the education of their children. Every campus that receives Title I, Part A funds MUST have a written parental involvement policy.
When parents are involved, students have…
- higher grades, test scores, graduation rates, and attendance rates.
- increased motivation and better self-esteem.
- decreased use of drugs and alcohol, and
- fewer instances of disruptive and/or violent behavior
