    Title I

    Title I is the largest federal education program supported through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. The current authorization is referred to as the "No Child Left Behind" Act. Schools qualify for fiscal support from Title I through the participation of students in the subsidized lunch program. Regulations require that school staff and parents participate in determining how funds are best used to meet the needs of a school. Title I schools are held accountable for and support student achievement, school improvement, and parent involvement.

     

    2016-2017 SRI Title I funds provide the following support:
    • Increase student achievement in Reading and Math
    • Provide additional classroom reading and math supplies
    • Provide Technology Instructional Coach to support technology integration
    • Increase parent-school relations
    • Increase community involvement
    • Integrate technology into classroom instruction

    •  Whether the teacher has met State qualification and certification requirements for the grade levels and subject he/she is teaching;

    • What undergraduate or graduate degrees the teacher holds, including graduate certificates and additional degrees, and major(s) or area(s) of concentration;
    • Whether their child receives help from a paraprofessional and, if so, their qualifications.
