Title I Parent School Compact
Title I is designed to meet the specific needs of the children attending Burnley-Moran Elementary School. Title I programs are also designed to improve the educational opportunities of under-achieving children and help them:
Succeed in the regular program
Attain grade level proficiency, and
Improve their achievement in the basic and more advanced skills.
The most recent law that affects Title I is No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). The law requires:
School districts have a written policy regarding parental involvement;
Parents be involved in the design, operation and evaluation of Title I;
Parents be consulted about home-school activities and be trained to help instruct their children;
Whenever possible, activities should be presented in the language spoken by majority of Title I parents.
Your child’s school should have a copy of the law on file for you to consult.
