Title I
Meeting

Savannah Lakes

October 3, 2019

WELCOME AND INTRODUCTIONS

WHY ARE WE HERE?

All schools receiving Title I, Part A funds are required to convene an annual Title I, Part A parent meeting

    • to inform parents and families of their school’s participation
    • to explain the requirements of the Title I, Part A program
    • to explain the right of parents to be involved

WHAT IS TITLE I?

Title I is the largest federal aid program for our nation's schools. The goal of Title I is a high quality education for every child. The program provides extra help to students who are attending identified Title I schools - those with high poverty levels (40% or more).

Title I focuses on assisting students in meeting the standards the state has set for all children.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A TITLE I SCHOOL?

Being a Title I school means receiving federal funding (Title I dollars) to supplement the school’s existing programs.

  • Children receive more educational opportunities
  • Parents have more say about their child's education
  • Teachers benefit through staff development, materials, and supplies purchased by Title I funds

Typically, in Texas, requirements of the Title I Plan are incorporated into the District Improvement Plan (DIP) and the Campus Improvement Plan (CIP). Topics include:

    • High-quality student academic assessments
    • Supplemental services to assist struggling students
    • Coordination and integration of federal funds and programs
    • Strategies to implement effective parent and family engagement
    • Title I, Part A parents have the right to be involved in the development of this plan
