In order to meet federal requirements, Title I schools must complete several tasks during the first few months of the school year. Click the "More" link to view resources available to assist with completion. Note the due dates for each requirement.
Faculty Meeting Presentation
Each Title I school must hold a faculty meeting to address Title I requirements and guidelines. An agenda with the date, time, and required topics of discussion is required along with the faculty sign-in sheets and verification. Many schools include this topic in the "Welcome Back" agenda on the first pre-planning day for teachers. Share the information with other key staff including the office personnel and parent liaisons. The presentation should be completed and documented by September 26, 2014.
Title I Annual Meeting
Each Title I school must convene a Title I Annual Meeting inviting and encouraging all parents to attend. Schools may hold their Annual Meeting on the same night as Open House providing that the invitation specifically includes information regarding the Annual Meeting and that the provided Vodcast is used. An agenda with date, time and required topics of discussion, sign-in sheets and minutes are required. This meeting should be completed by October 31, 2014.
The School-Parent Compact is an agreement between the school, parents, and students outlining the responsibilities of each stakeholder. During the development of the plan, document parent input by having agendas, sign-in sheets, and minutes. Evidence of distribution of the final draft to parents is usually documented with a parent signature tear-off at the bottom of the document. The final copies, in all languages, are to be uploaded in the PIP template no later than September 19, 2014.
Parent Involvement Policy/Plan (PIP)
Title I schools, with parents and community members, must jointly develop a Parent Involvement Plan (PIP) outlining activities parents can participate in to support their child’s academic achievement. During the development of the compact, document parent input by having agendas, sign-in sheets, and minutes. The PIP should be submitted on the State online template by September 19, 2014.
Distribution of LEA PIP
All Title I school districts are required to develop and distribute to parents a Parent Involvement Plan. This is often referred to as the Local Educational Agency Parent Involvement Plan, or simply, the LEA PIP. Since this document is lengthy, school districts may create a summary of the LEA PIP for distribution to parents in their native language. Copies will be distributed to schools for distribution to parents by October 31, 2014.
SIP/SWP Ten Components
Title I schools are required to document the Ten Components in their Title I Schoolwide Plan. The SIP template is designed to incorporate the components. Title I specialists will be assisting schools to meet compliance. SIPs are to be approved for Title I Ten Components by September 30, 2014. (Link to SIP/SWP Chat)
