TITLE I STATUS
Title I is a federal program that was enacted to ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and assessments. The Title I program primarily serves children in the areas of communication arts and mathematics. University City High School receives Title I funds for schoolwide assistance.
TITLE I SCHOOL PARENT AND FAMILY ENGAGEMENT POLICY
Title I, Part A, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) reauthorized as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), ensures that local school districts provide parents and families of Title I students with the information they need to make well-informed choices for their children including more effectively sharing responsibility for their child’s success, and helping their children’s schools develop effective and successful programs. The Title I School Parent and Family Engagement Policy outlines the manner in which Title I schools will conduct outreach to all parents and family members and implement programs, activities, and procedures for the involvement of parents and family members. Such programs, activities, and procedures shall be planned and implemented with meaningful consultation with parents of participating children.
