Title I is a federally funded program designed to ensure that all children have an opportunity to access a high quality education. The goal of this federal program is to close the achievement gap for all students. There are two types of Title I programs: Targeted Assistance School programs and Schoolwide Title I programs. Schools are identified and authorized to implement one of these programs based on the percentage of students receiving free and reduced-price meals (FARMs).
The Schoolwide program allows all students to be eligible for additional academic support. Federal funds are used to support and enhance the overall school program. Title I funds may be used to upgrade the entire school’s educational program so that the overall education of ALL children who attend the school can be improved. Currently, all Title I schools in Howard County operate as Schoolwide programs.
The No Child Left Behind Act contains several provisions that promote parent/school partnership. One such provision gives parents the right to ask for and receive information about the professional qualifications of their child's classroom teacher. If you would like to request the professional qualifications of your child's classroom teacher or paraprofessional, please submit a written request to your child's principal. Your child's principal will provide the information to you within 30 business days of the date of your request.
We value input from our parents, community, and staff. If you have any suggestions, questions, or feedback about our Family Involvement programs or any of the attached documents, please feel free to contact:
