Annual Title 1 Parent Meeting

Information

  1. The Title I Program:

Title I is a K-12 program that provides additional academic support and learning opportunities for students at schools with high percentages of socioeconomically disadvantaged children.  The program is intended to help ensure that all students meet challenging state academic standards.  The goal of Title I is to provide direct instructional support to students and professional development for teachers, in addition to promoting parent education and involvement.

 

  1. Parent Rights under Title I law, parents have the right to:
    • ask for their own meetings and trainings;
    • review the results of an annual parent involvement effectiveness survey;
    • review the school’s achievement data to determine if Title I services are effective in meeting the goals for student proficiency in state standards;
    • review the parent involvement plan in the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA);
    • review and modify the site Title I Parent Involvement Policy and Home/School Compact;

 

  1. Parent Involvement at Our School:

The School Site Council (SSC) provides parents with the opportunity to be involved in the academic program of the school.  The SSC develops, monitors, and evaluates the Single Plan for Student Achievement; implement programs and services that support students.  Additionally, parents can join the Parent Faculty Club (PFC) or the English Language Advisory Council (ELAC).  Both meet monthly here at El Dorado. We also hold Parent University Nights throughout the year covering such topics as training for using Homelink (our online gradebook), providing information on Digital Citizenship, Positive Parenting, etc. 

 

  1. School Achievement Data:

Schools analyze the California English Language Development Test (CELDT), and review schoolwide performance data including iReady scores and their quarterly grades for each subject matter.  We use the data to align the curriculum to state and district academic standards.  Additionally, we adjust instructional practices based on the findings of the assessment data.  The most recent data we have is from the Spring of 2015 SBAC scores which we used to help develop goals for the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).

  1. Single Plan for Student Achievement:

We are following the updated curriculum maps for math based on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).  We are also using data from the iReady assessments to provide extra support for students struggling in Math and/or Language Arts during and after the school day.  We are using support materials from the iReady assessment as well as Lexia for support in Language Arts and Symphony Math for Math.

 

  1. Title I Expenditures:

Schools are allocated Title I funds based upon the percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.  Schools in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District are ranked according to this percentage if over 40%, and receive an equal money per student.  Title I funds must supplement, not supplant, district funding.  One percent of that amount is allocated for parent involvement.  Schools in Program Improvement must allocate a minimum of 10 percent of their Title I funds for professional development.  In the SPSA, funds have been allocated for technology, materials and supplies, Professional Development for staff members, Intervention and Enrichment classes during and after the school day, Conferences and Parental Involvement.

 

  1. Title I Parent Involvement Policy:

The Title I Parent Involvement Policy communicates how the school will involve parents in an organized, ongoing, and timely way in the planning, review, and improvement of the Title I program at the school.

 

  1. Title I Home / School Compact:

The Title I Home/School Compact describes the responsibilities of the school, the parent, and the student for improved student achievement.
