Title I

The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education.

At Dysart Unified School District, Title I serves students preschool through high school in eligible schools.  There are currently nine Title I schools in our district, including eight elementary and one high school.  Title I-funded schools have School Wide programs.

Title I funds are supplemental in nature and are allocated to schools having high concentrations of low-income students.  Each one of our participating schools works with district administrators to design its own program to best serve the unique needs of students at that individual school.  Copies of each Continuous Improvement Plan are available upon request from the individual school site.

Parents are partners in their child’s education.  To ensure parents are included in the Title I program, the law defines the importance and requirements of parent involvement in Title I schools.  One requirement is a district Family Engagement Plan.  These plans are developed by parents and staff members from various schools.  Additionally, each Title I school must jointly develop and distribute its own written Parental Involvement Plan.  Each school receiving Title I funds must develop a school-parent compact that outlines how parents, school staff, and students will share responsibility for improving student achievement. 

When schools collaborate with parents to help their children learn, and when parents participate in school activities and decision making about their children's education, children achieve at higher levels.  When parents are involved in education, children perform better in school and schools improve.  To view your Parent Involvement Plan and/or compact, please visit your child's school website.

School districts must give parents information about the achievement and performance of the school in a format parents can understand.  Principals at each Title I school conduct informative presentations at the beginning of each school year outlining the details and requirements of the Title I program.  Parent’s "Right to Know” provisions are sent to parents annually notifying them of the right to information about the credentials of their children's teachers, as well as other pertinent information.
