Title I, Part A, is intended to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments. As the largest federal program supporting elementary and secondary education, Title I targets these resources to the districts and schools where the needs are greatest.
Title I is the federal government’s biggest program for elementary and secondary education. Its purpose is to give extra money to schools and school districts that serve many low income and struggling students. The money must be used to improve academic achievement in basic subjects and engage families in the education of their children. Your child does not need to be in a low income family to qualify for Title I services.
Since LMACS receives Title I funding, you have the right to request the following information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers:
- Whether your child’s teacher is licensed in the grade levels and subject areas they teach Whether your child’s teacher is teaching under an emergency license or waiver
- The college degree and major of your child’s teacher
- Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications
