Title 1/LAP

Title I

  • Title I is the largest federal education program providing support to our nation's schools. Its purpose is to provide opportunities and services in schools where students may be impacted by poverty and who are at risk of meeting the state's challenging performance standards.

  • Who are Title I students?

  • Children who score below grade level on the Idaho Reading Indicator or on other state and district assessments and are referred by the classroom teacher qualify to receive Title I services.  Once these students are identified, the students are instructed in small group according to their needs and strengths in phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension and writing.  This placement is reviewed regularly and children come into and out of the program based on their needs.

  • Parent Involvement

  • Parent involvement is an important component of the Title I program.  Title I helps parents and children develop successful reading habits both in school and at home.  Parents have a right to be involved in planning their child’s education, so teachers encourage involvement from families of children receiving our services.  Working together we can promote a successful educational experience.

  • Highly Qualified Status

  • All members of the Title I staff meet “Highly Qualified” status.  As a parent, you have the right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s teachers.

itle I Parent Compact

Each school receiving funds under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) must develop a written school-parent compact jointly with parents for all children participating in Title I activities, services, and programs. That compact is part of the school’s written parental involvement policy developed by the school and parents. The compact must outline how parents, the school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership to help children achieve the State’s high standards. Yearly the compact should be evaluated to determine its effectiveness with revisions made as necessary.

Elementary schools must schedule annually a parent/teacher conference to discuss the compact.
