Title I Documents and Information

What is Title I?
Title I is a part of the Every Student Succeeds Act. Title I is a federally funded program which provides services to schools based on student economic need.Title I is designed to support state and local school reform efforts tied to challenging state academic standards in order to reinforce and enhance efforts to improve teaching and learning for students.

Title I programs must be based on effective means of improving student achievement and include strategies to parental and family engagement.

Title I programs are either schoolwide or targeted assistance. Schools must have a 40% free and/or reduced lunch count in order to qualify as a Title I school. Currently there are thirteen elementary schools, four middle schools, and one high school that receive Title I, Part A funds to support their schoolwide programs. Funds at each facility are used to hire additional personnel to reduce class size and to purchase supplemental instructional and technological materials to help impact student achievement.

What is the Purpose of Title I?
To provide extra educational assistance beyond the regular classroom to at-risk students.

Why is Family Engagement Important?
Family engagement is important for student achievement and the success of Title I programs. All parents and family members are invited to attend Title I family engagement meetings. Reminders are sent by each Title I school and by messenger on Infinite Campus. Dates and times rotate to accommodate all parents. At the family engagement meeting, parents and family members are given the opportunity to:

• Determine Title I program goals
• Plan, implement and evaluate Title I programs
• Revise the Parent and Family Engagement Policy and Compact
• Attend Parent and Family Engagement conferences and build capacity

What is a Parent and Family Engagement Policy?
The district has a Parent and Family Engagement Policy as well as does each Title I school in the Hall County School District. The district policy sets the expectation and establishes the framework for family engagement at each building.

The district and school policy/plan is the foundation for home, school, and community partnerships that set forth the expectations for parental and family engagement activities and describe how those activities will be implemented and evaluated to assure adequate and meaningful involvement.

The policy ensures that strong strategies are in place to build the capacity to involve parents and family members in an effective partnership with the school and share and support high student academic achievement.

What is a School-Parent Compact?
A school-parent compact is an agreement that parents, family members, students, and teachers develop together. It explains how parents and teachers work together to ensure all students receive the individual support they need to reach and exceed grade level academic standards.

Each Title I school in the district has a school-parent compact that is distributed to parents and the community. The School-Parent Compact was developed with input from parents, family members, students, and teachers. It is reviewed and updated annually.
