Title I Overview

Components of Title I are:

  • Effective Instruction
  • Professional Development
  • Parental Involvement

Studies show that the more parents are involved in the education of their child, the more academically successful that child will be. The goal of the Title I Parent Involvement program is to give school-based Parent Involvement Facilitators information, materials, and resources to enable them to provide for their parents at the school-level. It is the job of the Facilitator to give parents the tools and resources necessary for them to help their child at home. Everyone working together in this way gives the child the best possible support for doing well in school.

Explanation of State and District Test Scores

The Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) tests how students are doing in Reading, Writing, Math, and Science.  Students in grades 3rd – 5th take the FSA reading test. Students in 4th and 5th grade take a writing assessment that is part of their reading score.  Grade 3 students must earn an FSA Reading score of Level 2 or higher on a scale of 1 – 5 in order to be promoted to grade 4.

Parent & Family Engagement Plan (PFEP)

A School-Parent Involvement Plan gives parents information about what parent involvement is, the value of a parent being involved in their child’s education, what will be offered during the school year to help parents have the tools and resources necessary to help their child at home, and what the school is constantly doing in order to have more parents involved.

All Title I schools have copies of their Parent and Family Engagement Plans (PFEPs) in their front office, as well as translated versions. For a copy of the school PFEP or district PFEP, please contact Dr. Tatom at 863.421.3316 or email at lana.tatom@polk-fl.net

School-Parent Compact

A School-Parent Compact is a written agreement between the school and the parents of the children participating in Title I, Part A programs that identifies the activities that the parents, the entire school staff, and the students will undertake to share the responsibility for improved academic achievement.  This agreement is developed with input from parents, community members, and school staff. At elementary Title I schools, the compact is discussed during family/teacher conferences. All Title I schools have copies of the compact in their front office, as well as translated versions. Compacts are located in the student agendas in English and Spanish.
