What Is Title I?
"Title I" is the federal program that provides funding to local school districts to improve the academic achievement of disadvantaged students. It is part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act first passed in 1965. That Act is reauthorized by Congress from time to time, and often given a new name. It is currently known as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
District 318 is committed to the goal of providing quality education for every child in this district. To this end, we want to establish partnerships with parents and with the community. Everyone gains if school and home work together to promote high achievement by our children. Neither home nor school can do the job alone. Parents play an extremely important role as children's first teachers. Their support for their children and for the school is critical to their children's success at every step along the way.
The Schools Families Community Partnerships Steering Committee provides guidance and support for Parent Involvement and Engagement activities for District #318. The Committee's mission is: To build a connected network of partnerships among families, schools, and community to increase student success and develop the whole child.
The Schools Families Community Partnerships Steering Committee serves as the Title I Parent Involvement committee.
