We are a Title I school.  Title I is a federal grant offered to school districts to ensure that all children have a fair and equal opportunity to obtain a high quality education. Under Title I, we receive additional funding to help teacher develop professionally, provide interventions to students who are struggling in reading and math, and for parents to learn ways to help their children at home.
Each year, we work with parents to develop programs and activities that link our school goals for reading and math to at-home learning. The school-parent compact is a joint pledge that affirms the commitment of students, families, and school staff to meeting high academic standards. We use the Title I parent allocation and fund-raising to support our efforts.  If you have any questions about the Title I parent involvement program, please contact the Family and Community Engagement Chairperson or principal.
