                                                Welcome to Title I 2017/2018

 

What is Title I?

 

Title I is the largest federal aid program for elementary, middle and high schools.  Each district uses its Title I money for extra educational services for children who need additional support in school.  In Hillside, additional teachers such as myself are working with your children in cooperation with the classroom teacher to provide additional support.

 

What does the program offer parents?

 

All Title I programs must have in place a plan for how it will involve parents.  This plan, called a parent involvement policy, explains how the school and district support the important role of parents in education.  The parent involvement policy includes a compact, which is a written statement of what schools, teachers, and parents are supposed to do to help students achieve.  The Hillside Parent Involvement Policy can be found on the district website.

 

If my child is in Title I, how can I help?

 

Parents can help their children be more successful by teaching them in ways that add to what the teacher is doing...by learning more about their school...by supporting their children and the school...and by making decisions about their children's education.

 

Please call the school or email me at ewelsh@hillsidek12.org anytime to schedule an appointment.

 

 

I look forward to working with all of your children during the 2017/2018 school year.
