Title I

  • What is Title I?

    Title I is a federally funded program through the Elementary & Secondary Act (ESEA) designed to provide support to students who are performing below grade level in reading and/or math. The goal is to emphasize high academic standards in an effort to help students succeed in the classroom and reach grade level performance.

    What are some typical Title I services?

    In St. Cloud Area Schools our Title I schools have a Schoolwide Tile I model which means all students in the school are provided with additional support to address the needs of all the students at that school. St. Cloud Title I Schoolwide schools focus on providing additional support in reading and math instruction and may provide additional support in attendance, school climate, etc.

    Do all St. Cloud Area Schools have a Title I program?

    No. The Federal law requires that Title I programs are available in schools with the greatest concentration of low-income families. St. Cloud Title I schools are Discovery, Talahi, Lincoln, Westwood, Lincoln, and Oak Hill Elementary schools and North and South Junior High Schools. Please review each school’s website to learn more about their Title I Schoolwide Program.

    How are parents/guardians involved?

    In schoolwide programs, parents are invited to attend the school’s annual Title I Meeting. Parents, staff and students may participate in the development and carrying out of a compact that spells out the goals and shared responsibilities of the child, school and parents for student success. Parents are encouraged to participate in Title I meetings and learning opportunities.

    As a parent/guardian, you have the right to…

    • know the qualifications of your child’s teacher
    • expect regular communication with your school in a language that you can understand
    • know how your child’s school is rated on its state test scores
    • work with other parents and staff to develop a school-level parent compact between the school and its families
    • work with teachers, parents and the school principal to develop your school’s family involvement plan

    Parent's Right to Know

    At the beginning of each school year, school districts must notify parents of children attending Title I schools that they can request information regarding their children's teachers. In addition, if students are taught by a teacher who is not highly qualified the parents of students in Title I schools must be notified, in a timely manner, if their child has been assigned to, or has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by, a teacher who is not highly qualified.
