Title I

What is Title I?

Title I, Part A of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provides assistance to states and school districts to meet the needs of educationally at-risk students. The goal of Title I is to provide extra instructional services and activities which support students identified as at risk of failing to meet the state’s challenging performance standards, most specifically in math or English/language-arts.

What will Title I programs do for my child?

The Title I program will provide your child with supplemental educational assistance beyond the regular classroom.

How can I get involved?

Parents, you can influence the success of your student in school more than any teacher or federal program. By becoming an active participant in the Title I parent involvement plan at your school, you will:

  • Serve as a role model, showing your student that you support his/her education.

  • Assure that you are aware of your student’s educational progress; thereby demonstrating its importance.

What does research tell us?

Research shows that how well students do in school depends a great deal upon how much their parents get involved in their education. You can become more involved by:

  • Joining local and national school/parent organizations

  • Supporting school extra-curricular activities

  • Volunteering at the school

  • Attending parent-teacher conferences

  • Communicating with your student’s teacher regularly, by writing notes, telephoning the school, etc.

  • Keeping your student’s teacher informed about events in his or her life which may affect his/her performance at school

  • Discussing with your student’s teacher and parent organizations other ideas for parent involvement
