Title I

What is Title I?

 
Title I is a project funded by the federal government under the Every Child Succeeds Act.  The purpose of this Act is to provide all children with fair and equitable opportunity to succeed and close achievement gaps. Money is allocated by the federal government and distributed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to the Bristol Township School.  District.
 
Title I funding is based on a complex formula.  These funds are allocated to the states who in turn allocate a portion of that money to the individual school districts within each state.  The school district’s share is based on the economic need within a school area, that is, by the number of low income families living there.  In our district the number of free and reduced lunch students is used to determine the economic need of a particular school.
 

How does Title I integrate with the regular classroom program?
 
  Our Title I program works very well with the MTSS process in the elementary schools.  Both programs are supplementary to the core reading program and follow the guidelines of the Title I.
 
 
  
Where do parents fit in Title I?
 
Parents play an important part in the success of their child.  Parents can encourage a positive attitude toward learning by setting aside time for homework and reading.  By attending conferences and activities at your school, you demonstrate the importance you place on education.  Parents are encouraged to contact the school any time for information about their child’s program.      
 
Parents have the right by law to request information regarding the professional qualifications and academic degrees of any teacher providing instruction to their child at a school receiving Title I funds.  Parents should be notified annually at the beginning of the school year about their right to request such information.  Parents must also be notified by the district when their child, who attends a Title I funded school, has been assigned to or taught for four (4) or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not highly qualified, as defined by federal law.

Parents also have the right by law to request information regarding the qualifications of any paraprofessional who provides instructional support to their child at a school receiving Title I funds.  Parents should be notified annually at the beginning of the school year about their right to request this information.
