Proud to be a Title I School

What is Title I?

In Title I, active parents play a vital role. Meetings are scheduled throughout the year to share information that enables parents/guardians to help their children improve reading and math skills. Families, teachers, and schools work together to design and implement a program to meet the educational needs of each child.

Title I supports parent involvement because:

• Involved parents motivate children

• Families can support learning in the home

• Early skills acquired at home provide the foundation of learning

• Parents help increase public understanding and support for school programs

• Children develop positive attitudes about learning with involved, understanding, and supportive parents/guardians

 

Dear Parents,

             Bush receives additional supplemental funds through a Title I grant from the federal government to provide extra supplementary services for all of our students.  Your children will benefit directly or indirectly from this extra help.  At Bush these funds, along with other federal resources, will be consolidated to support school wide positive changes.  Funds can be used to:

       Hire highly qualified instructional personnel to assist teachers within the classrooms

 

      Provide training for staff and teachers

      Provide supplemental instructional materials and technology

      Ensure high-quality schoolwide programs

      Increase parent involvement participation

 We are pleased to have these funds to provide high quality instruction for all children.

How was Bush Elementary Picked to be a Title I School?

Title I Schools are selected based on the percentage of students receiving free and reduced lunch.  Schools must have at least 35 percent of their students on free and reduced lunch to be a Title I school.  All students who attend Bush Elementary can benefit from Title I funds, however, at-risk students are the primary focus.  Please consider filling out a Free and Reduced Meal Application, even if you think you may not qualify.

Parent Involvement PolicyHow Can Parents Be Involved? 

 

 

Each Title I school must share responsibility with parents for high student performance by joining with school staff to develop a parent involvement policy, a school-parent-student compact, and other programs and curriculum needed at school.
