The goal of Title I is to ensure that all children have an equal opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on state academic achievement assessments.
The eligibility of a school to receive Title I services is determined by the percentage of students receiving free or reduced cost meals and students that have demonstrated a need for services. After a campus qualifies as a Title I school, students generally receive instruction in small groups of ten or less by a highly qualified teacher. The Title I classes are supplemental and do not take the place of regular classroom instruction.
A strong component of the Title I program is the parent/school relationship. Each campus works with families to support student success by offering multiple parent involvement opportunities throughout the school year. Before you volunteer, you must complete a criminal background check. This helps to keep students safe at our schools.
Kennedale ISD Online Volunteer Application
One shared goal is to focus on communication. To support the partnership between school and home, please keep your child's teacher informed about family changes that may affect your child and read information that is sent home. If questions come up throughout the school year, please contact your child's teacher or school staff.
It is exciting and very beneficial to have additional staff and resources from Title I at your child's school. With the combined efforts of students, families and a committed staff of teachers, all children in Kennedale ISD can achieve success! If you have any questions about Title I Parent Involvement, or for more information, please contact Denise Panice.
