Title I was passed in 1965 under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). It is the largest federal assistance program for our nation’s schools. Title I schools receive extra funding (Title I dollars) from the federal government. These dollars are used to:
- Identify students experiencing academic difficulties and provide assistance to help these students;
- purchase additional staff, programs, materials, and/or supplies; and
- conduct parent and family engagement meetings, trainings, events, and/or activities.
Berwyn North 98 will engage parents and families in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication addressing student achievement and ensuring that parents and family members:
- Play an integral role in assisting their child’s learning,
- are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education, and
- are included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child.
