Title I, Part A, provides resources to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to receive a quality education, resulting in their attainment of high academic standards. Title I targets resources to districts and schools whose needs are the greatest.
Even though the amount of Title I funds a school and district may receive is based on poverty rates, the children that benefit from the program(s) are not, necessarily, just students of poverty. Rather, Title I programs work to address the needs of a school's lowest performing students and those students found to be at most risk for not meeting state academic standards.
No Child Left Behind brought greater accountability to Title I states, districts, and schools for improving the academic achievement of all students and turning around low-performing schools.
2017-18 Title I Schools:
Dos Rios Elementary
Bella Romero Academy K-8
Salida del Sol Academy
Prairie Heights Middle
When a Title school does not meet state standards, students have the choice to transfer to another school within the district. For more information, click here: Title I School Choice
Family Education Meetings (FEM)
Family Education Meetings are opportunities to build partnerships between schools and families to increase student achievement. These workshops provide parents with the information and resources to participate in the educational process and learn strategies to assist working with their children at home. Meetings are facilitated by the school and are interactive. Schools may provide information, practice, or materials for home use. Educational childcare for ages 3 through 5th grade is provided. Please contact your school for their Family Education Meetings schedule.
