Title I in Little Elm ISD

  • Title I, is a federal program that  provides funding to local school districts to improve the academic achievement of disadvantaged students. "Disadvantaged" students are those who come from low-income families, are in foster homes, or are neglected or delinquent, or who live in families receiving temporary assistance from state governments.
     
    Programs funded with Title I money must specifically serve students who are failing to meet academic standards or at risk of failing because they are disadvantaged. However, if more than 40% of the students in a school qualify as disadvantaged, the school is allowed to run "schoolwide" programs that serve all students, not just the disadvantaged.
     
    Title I is part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) first passed in 1965. That Act is reauthorized by Congress from time to time, and often given a new name. In 2002 it was reauthorized as the No Child Left Behind Act and in 2015 it was reauthorized as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). 

Parent Involvement

  • Title I, Part A defines parent involvement as the...participation of parents in regular, two-way and meaningful communications with school staff that involves the students, addresses learning and engages the family in school activities.
