Davis Elementary School is implementing a school-wide Title I program in math and reading. We utilize Title I schoolwide funds to meet the LAP K-4 Literacy Focus.
Parents as partners in education are an extremely important part of the Title I program. Through parental involvement, parents are provided opportunities to actively participate in their child’s education. Parents can participate in a variety of ways, including participating in school-based activities, visiting their child’s classroom and teacher, volunteering in the schools, and attending conferences. The Title I school Wide Compact outlines how parents, students, and school will share the responsibility for improved student learning. Every parent should receive a copy of the school’s School-Parent-Student Compact to review. Compacts are revised as needed. Parents are encouraged to volunteer on school improvement teams, assist in extended-day activities with other parents, teachers, and the school administrator(s) through PTA.
The following may be supported by the Title I school-wide program:
Provide additional instruction to children who are experiencing difficulty in reading and/or math
Provide extended-learning opportunities before or after the regular school day
Title I Part A seeks achievement of high academic standards by all children and provides for additional educational assistance in the general education classroom by Title I personnel.
Focus on success by using a measurement of student academic progress and needs through assessment.
Providing accountability for results in schools
Maintaining high-quality standards for instructional personnel
Providing parental knowledge, involvement, and choices
