No Child Left Behind Title I, Part A Program Annual Parent Meeting Chavez High School Date: September 10, 2015 Presenter: Nadine Ghosn Assistant Principal
Title I Annual Meeting In 2001, the federal government passed the NCLB Act which provided identified schools with federal funds for the purpose of supplementing the instructional program of schools to ensure a high quality education for students that would help them meet the state standard (currently STAAR – State of Texas Assessment for Academic Readiness). 2
How Schools Qualify Campuses with a low-income percentage of 40%-100% are considered “school- wide” campuses. Campuses with a low-income percentage of 35-39% are considered a “targeted assistance” campus. Campuses with a low-income percentage below 35% are not eligible for Title I funds. 3
Title I Annual Meeting These “supplemental” federal funds are used to: Accelerate instruction for struggling students, Provide professional-development for teachers and paraprofessionals, Hire highly qualified personnel, Give additional resources – technology, personnel, materials, instructional programs, software, and Encourage parent and family involvement. 4
