Parent Involvement Plan
J. Clyde Hopkins
As part of the reauthorization of the Elementary
and Secondary Education Act renamed “No Child Left Behind,” all schools that
receive Title I funds must have a written parent involvement policy. Such a policy is designed to communicate with
parents of students that participate in any Title I related program. The following has been written and approved
by the Title I staff, incorporating the input of Title I parents.
What is Title I?
Title I provides federal funding for schools
to help students who are identified as most at risk of failing to meet the
State’s academic achievement standards.
Funding is based on the number of low-income children in a school, which
is generally determined by the number of students eligible for the free or
reduced lunch program. Title I is
intended to supplement, not replace, state and district funds.
Title I funding may be used for direct or
indirect services. Indirect support may
come in the form of professional development for teachers and assistants or
curriculum, supplies and materials for Title I programs. Students who receive
direct services are determined by a specified set of criteria.
Title I Services at
- K-5 After School Math
– Identified students receive approximately 90 minutes of math
intervention instruction per week with a certified teacher. Curriculum is chosen which specifically
addresses the skill level and needs of each student. This includes both re-teaching and pre-teaching
of essential grade level skills and content. Title I math instruction is supplemental
and does not replace the core classroom curriculum. Curriculum includes both direct
instruction and the use of technology.
- Student achievement data will
be examined each trimester to determine which students have the greatest
need for intervention services.
- Student progress will be
monitored using in-program data, classroom based assessments, as well as
school-wide standardized test scores
- Pre-Kindergarten Class – Identified
students receive 3 hours of classroom instruction per day which includes
literacy, numeracy, and social skill building.
