Title 1 is our oldest and largest federally funded education program. Since 1965, the main purpose of the program has been to help children meet challenging state academic standards by providing extra instructional supports beyond what the regular classroom provides.
PROVIDE high-quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment.
HOLD annual parent-teacher conferences.
PROVIDE parents with reports on their child's progress.
BE accessible to parents.
PROVIDE parents opportunities to volunteer and participate in their child's class and to observe classroom activities.
Parents have the right to be involved in the academic decisions regarding their children and can influence the success of their child/children by becoming more active in school programs. I, as a parent, will support my child's learning in the following ways:
MAKE sure they are in school everyday possible
ASSIST and CHECK that homework is completed.
MONITOR the amount of television watched.
VOLUNTEER at SCHOOL: When the opportunities arise.
ATTEND parent/teacher conferences, meeting, and extra-curricular activities.
STAY informed about my child's education by reading all communications from the school and responding appropriately.
How Can My Child Receive Title 1 Services
There are two types of Title 1 programs: School-Wide and Targeted-Assistance. Pettis County R-XII is a School Wide Title 1 Program. This means that every child in our district is eligible to benefit from additional services and supports for improved academic achievements. At the beginning of each school year a School/Parent/Student Compact is sent home to be signed. By signing the "Compact ", teachers, staff, parents, and students agree to work together to share the responsibility of helping students meet or exceed state, district and school academic goals.
As a student, I share the responsibility of improving my academic performance to meet state standards and will:
ATTEND school everyday when possible.
BE respectful toward others.
DO my homework everyday and ask for help when I need it.
READ at least 30 minutes every day (grades 3-8)/Kindergarten - 2nd reads 5 - 10 minutes everyday outside of school time.
