Parents here you will find the Title 1 Presentation. This presentation explains more in-depth about our Title 1 status here at WES.
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is the nation's main education law for all public schools. The law holds schools accountable for how students learn and achieve. ESSA aims to ensure that all students, including students with disabilities, English learners, and other historically underserved groups are ready for college and career. Under ESSA, schools continue to have the flexibility to teach students in different ways, while maintaining a high bar to assess students against state-developed college- and career-ready standards.
Title I, one component of ESSA, provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers/percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging academic standards. The Title I funds can be used for a variety of services and resources for participating schools, which may include additional teachers and support staff, extra time for instruction, a variety of teaching materials, smaller class size, Instructional Coaches and Professional Learning for staff, and more.
All schools receiving Title I funding must notify parents annually of their Title I status.
PROCEDURE FOR DETERMINING ELIGIBLE TITLE I SCHOOLS AND ALLOCATIONS
Current Title I allocations for funding have been determined based on data shared by Child Nutrition Services from the beginning of March 2020. Schools qualify as follows:
- Elementary Schools with 45% Free and Reduced Lunch (FRL) percentage and higher
- Secondary Schools with 50% Free and Reduced Lunch (FRL) percentage and higher
