What is Title I-A?
Title I-A is a federal program that provides supplemental funds to schools to help support academic learning. Title I-A eligibility is determined by the percent of students that qualify for free/reduced lunch. Title I funds are used for educational services for students most in need of support, parental involvement opportunities and professional development. Title I-A funds are available for teachers, materials, and support services for schools that qualify under ESSA guidelines. The focus of the Title I-A program is on helping all students meet the same high standards expected of all children.
Parental Involvement (KIBSD BOE Policy BP 6020)
The School Board recognizes that parents/guardians are their children’s first and most influential teachers and that continued parental involvement in the education of children contributes greatly to student achievement and conduct. Parents/guardians can directly affect academic success by reinforcing their children’s motivation and commitment to education. The District shall include parent involvement strategies as a component of instructional planning.
Teachers and parents/guardians can better understand and meet student needs if they work together. All of our schools have a duty to communicate frequently with the home and to help parents/guardians develop skills and family management techniques which support classroom learning. Administrators and teachers should keep parents/guardians well informed about school expectations and tell them when and how they can assist their children in support of classroom learning activities. The Board encourages staff training in effective communication with the home.
The Board encourages parents/guardians to serve as volunteers in the schools and to attend student performances and school meetings.
