What is Title I ? Timely information about Title I at our school.

Virginia’s new School Quality Profiles provide information about student achievement, college and career readiness, program completion, school safety, teacher quality and other topics of interest to parents and the general public. It also provides data on other key indicators of school quality. Parents may request paper copies of this report by contacting the school's principal or the Office of Federal Programs.

School and Parent Compacts
School-Parent Compact for Achievement is an agreement that parents, students and teachers develop together that describes the partnership between home and school.

Our plan follows these 6 standards:
Standard 1—Welcoming All Families into the School Community
Standard 2—Communicating Effectively
Standard 3—Supporting Student Success
Standard 4—Speaking Up for Every Child
Standard 5—Sharing Power
Standard 6—Collaborating with Community

Each school receiving funds under Title I, Part A, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) must develop a written school-parent involvement policy  jointly with parents for all children participating in Title I, Part A, activities, services, and programs.  That policy must comply with Section 1118(b) of the ESEA and shall describe the means for carrying out the requirements of subsections (c) through (f). 

On January 8, 2002, the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) was signed into law. Section 1111(h)(6)(A) states that as a parent of a student a school receiving Title I funds, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers instructing your child.

Schoolwide Plan  

A schoolwide program is a comprehensive reform strategy designed to upgrade the entire educational program in a Title I school; its primary goal is to ensure that all students, particularly those who are low-achieving, demonstrate proficient and advanced levels of achievement on SOLs. This schoolwide reform strategy requires that schools do the following:

  • Create a planning committee
  • Conduct a comprehensive needs assessment
  • Create a comprehenisive plan
  • Conduct an annual review of the effectiveness of the schoolwide program and revise the plan as necessary
