Title I, Part A (Title I) Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
Provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Federal funds are currently allocated through four statutory formulas that are based primarily on census poverty estimates and the cost of education in each state.
A minimum of 1% of a school's allocation of Title I, Part A funds must support parent and family engagement activities and programs. Chancellor’s Regulation A-655 requires School Leadership Teams (SLTs) to consult with Title I parent representatives regarding the Title I program and the use of these funds. Each Title I school must jointly develop a Parent and Family Engagement Policy that describes how the school will carry out the parent and family engagement requirements aligned with student achievement goals, including the development of a school-parent compact in the SCEP. Expenditures made with parent and family engagement funding must align closely with those detailed in the jointly developed Parent and Family Engagement Policy.
Parent and Family Engagement funds must be scheduled and expended exclusively for parent education services.
Title 1 schools must form a Title I Parent Committee, known as a Parent Advisory Council (PAC). If the Title I Chairperson/Alternate Term expires in June, Principals will schedule a meeting and send out a "willingness to serve" notice to parents for the Title I PAC for the 2022-2023 school year by June 30th. Please contact your parent coordinator for more information.
