Title I

Farmington School District
Title I, Part A

Draft Title 1 Parent/Guardian Involvement Policy

Title 1 Survey

Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act/No Child Left Behind is designed to help disadvantaged children meet challenging content and student performance standards. The funds are allocated to school districts based on poverty data. Once the allocation is received by the district, the funds are used to meet the needs of students that are academically in need of additional support.

There are two Title I, Part A models used within the Farmington School District. Both Valley View Community School and Henry Wilson Memorial School use a school-wide model. Under this model, both schools are allowed to use Title I funds to support all student needs, rather than only selected students. Farmington High School uses a targeted assistance model. Under this model, student benchmark assessment scores and performance in class are reviewed to identify students who will be offered Title 1 support. All Title I support is provide in addition to academic support that the district normally provides. Some examples of additional support provided in the past through Title I, Part A funds within the Farmington School District are as follows:

-additional academic support provided by additional staff within the classroom or within a pull-out (outside the regular classroom) model
-after-school and summer academic programs and assistance
-additional professional development for school staff, focused on the implementation of the school innovation plans
-additional books and materials in the classroom and in Title I pull-out programs
-supplies and funding for parent involvement activities
-supplies, materials, tutoring and support for homeless students
-additional technology and intervention tools
