    Quick Look at Title I Part A Program

    • Formerly called Chapter 1, began as “Head Start” Program; provides financial support to schools

       

    • Purpose is for students to have a fair and equal opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and to master state academic standards (TEKS) and state assessments (TAKS/STAAR)

       

    • Not all SISD campuses are eligible to be Title I; free and reduced lunch count is used to determine which campuses can be Title I campuses

    • Funds must supplement reading, math and other core subject instruction

     

    • Two types of Title I schools: “Schoolwide” and “Targeted Assisted”

     

    • SES is a Title I Schoolwide campus, which allows every student and all teachers and instructional aides to be eligible to benefit from Title I resources

     

    • Title I program information and supplemental academic strategies must be in campus improvement plan

     

    • Parents are partners in the student’s education; School Parent Compact encourages this partnership

     

    • Federal accountability in addition to state accountability

     

    • Sanctions for not meeting accountability two years in a row, in same content area and same sub-group
