Title I

What is Title I?

Title I is a federal grant program in which federal money is allocated to districts to provide supplementary educational support to students who are struggling academically or are at most risk of falling behind. Title I is allocated to schools based on the percentage of students receiving free/reduced lunch.  Title I funds are used to hire additional personnel, to purchase educational resources that will benefit the students to reach their individual goals, and to promote family involvement.

 The Title I program strives to provide an environment that:

  • Promotes a positive attitude toward learning in the core content areas, heavily focused on math and literacy
  • Improves academic success
  • Builds learners’ self-esteem and confidence
  • Enables parents to help their children succeed

Parents' Right to Know  

Valley View Community School and Henry Wilson Memorial School both receive Title I funds to help students reach established academic standards.  Teachers within each school are qualified to teach in their assigned grade levels and subject areas. Under the Federal law, Every Child Succeeds Act of 2015 , we are required to notify parents of their rights. Parents may request information about the qualifications of the student’s classroom teachers.  In particular, a parent may seek the following information:

  •  Whether the teacher meets the State qualifications for the grade level and subject area of instruction;
  • Whether the teacher is teaching outside the certification;
  • The degree held by the teacher and any other graduate certification or degrees and the field of the certification or degree; and
  • Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and if so their qualifications.

If you would like to request any of the above information, please contact the principal of your child's  school. A written request may be sent to 35 School St., Farmington NH 03835. All responses will be made in a timely manner.
