engagement.
• Of that 1%, 10% may be reserved at the LEA for system-wide
initiatives related to parent and family engagement. The remaining
90% must be allocated to all Title I schools in the LEA. Therefore

Editor's Notes

  1. Discuss: How you want them to walk away from the meeting with 10 key questions answered about Title I and Parental Involvement. (The 10 questions continue onto the next slide.)
  2. Discuss: - The last question “How can I be involved in all of these things I’m learning about?” should be emphasized as a common theme which will be addressed throughout the meeting as each topic is discussed. It is every Title I parent’s right to be involved in all Title I plans and activities.
  3. Discuss: How being in a Title I school means more money to help students who are struggling in school - Give examples of how Title I monies will be used to assist students at the school. Give examples of how Title I monies will be used to assist parents. (Consider giving demonstrations of programs used or allow parents to visit work stations and experience what the student experiences.) - Explain that a big part of Title I means parents’ rights, by law, to be involved in decisions made at the school level and at the LEA level. (This will be discussed throughout the meeting.) Important: Parents should leave the meeting being able to answer the following question: What does it mean to be a Title I school? (They should be able to answer the question and give a couple of examples of how Title I funds are being used at their school.)
  4. Discuss: - What the LEA’s Title I allocation is. - What the 1% amount is. How much of the 1% (Up to 5%) was reserved, off the top, at the LEA for System-wide initiatives.
