Title I Introduction (Spanish/English)
Through federal education law, parents have the right to request information on the professional qualifications of the child’s classroom teachers. Also, if at any time during the school year, your child is taught by a teacher who is not highly qualified for four or more consecutive weeks, you will receive a timely notice from the school. The parents’ right –to-know provision also requires that each Title I school furnish to each individual parent, information on the level of achievement of your child in each of the state academic assessments required under law.

School-Parent Compact (Spanish/English)
The compact is written agreement between teachers and parents. It is a document that clarifies what families and schools can do to help children reach high academic standards. Every school receiving Title I funds must develop a compact. The compact serves as a clear reminder of everybody’s responsibility to take action at school and at home so that children can learn what is required of them. It is a written commitment indicating how all members of a school community — parents, teachers, principals, students, and concerned community members — agree to share responsibility for student learning.
A parent involvement policy describes how the school will work with parents to help all the students in the school meet high academic standards. It explains basic information such as: Parents’ rights and responsibilities, what schools and parents are supposed to do to help students achieve (a school-parent compact), when the annual Title I and other parent meetings will be held. Schools must, to the extent possible, give parents information that they can understand, even if parents speak languages other than English or have difficulty reading.
The purpose of the Title I Program is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on Texas academic assessments (TAKS and STAAR).

Title I teachers work with the school’s principal and the Parent Advisory Council chairmen in developing a Title I Parent Policy for the school.
All Title I schools are required to hold an annual Title I meeting at the beginning of the school year: Hall will provide notice of the date of this meeting for 2015-16 via messages sent via the autodialer and\or newsletters\progress reports.
This affords the parents the opportunity to learn more about Title I and begins a communication process between parents/teachers/school administrators.
