Connecting Home and School
Welcome to the Title 1 Parent Resource site. The goal of providing this information to you is to increase parent involvement while raising student achievement. Title 1 funds are allocated to various schools to allow them to hold school-wide events, supplement learning activities and other services designed to provide educational assistance. Title 1 sponsored events are always open to ALL parents from Title 1 schools. If you are in doubt, contact the parent facilitator at the host school.
