Title I Services
What is Title I?
Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act provides financial assistance to states and school districts to meet the needs of educationally at-risk students. The goal of Title I is to provide extra instructional services and activities which support students identified as failing or most at-risk of failing the state's challenging performance standards in core content areas.
Title I funding is used to offer support services to students who need extra time and instruction to master grade level curriculum. Title I schools are identified through a state formula each year. The following schools were identified as Title I schools for 2017 - 2018:
Evergreen/Springview Elementary School
Oakwood Intermediate School
A parent/guardian letter will be sent home if your child is identified as eligible for support services funded through Title I. Title I services may be short term or long term depending on the needs of each individual student. We are pleased to offer these services to help ALL of our students be successful.
As parents/guardians of students receiving Title I support services, we encourage you to be actively involved in any curricular decisions for your child. Please read the Allendale Board Policy Language to review your rights as parents/guardians in our Title I program.
Title I schools are required by the state and federal government to provide information to parents/guardians on school and district school improvement plans, parent involvement plans, and school compact agreements.
If you have any questions, please contact your child’s building principal or Dr. Julia Reynolds, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, at 616-892-5570 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
