KIMBERLEY PARK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Title 1 Compact
Third Grade 2019-2020
Title 1 Compact
Each Title I school must have a School-Parent Compact that is developed jointly by parents and school personnel.
The compact sets out the responsibilities of the students, parents, and school staff in striving to raise student achievement.
At the elementary grades (PreK- 5 only), the compact should be discussed and amended during parent-teacher conferences and documented in a teacher communication log.
What is Title 1
Title One is a federal grant that provides supplemental funding for resources to schools with a high concentration of students on free/reduced priced meals to meet educational goals, such as:
- Smaller class sizes, additional teachers and paraprofessionals, training for school staff on how to engage parents and families, extra time for instruction (Before and/or Afterschool Programs), and Parent and Family Engagement activities as well as a variety of supplemental materials d
Purpose of Title 1 and its requirements
All Title I schools must allocate at least one percent of the Title I budget towards programs, activities, and procedures for parent and family engagement.
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires that all Title I schools and families work together.
Each school shall jointly develop with, and distribute to, parents and family members of participating children a written Tile I Parent and Family Engagement Plan (PFEP).
Our state requires that at least 2 parent/family representatives serve as members of our School Improvement Team.
The following documents are a collaboration between school and family:
School Improvement Plan (SIP);
Title I School-level Parent and Family Engagement Plan/Policy (PFEP); and our School-Parent Compact.
