What is Title I?

Title 1 Apple and Pencil Picture
Title I is a Federal Program that provides funding to school districts to improve the academic achievement of disadvantaged students.  Signed in to law in 1965, as part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), it is reauthorized by Congress periodically.  The Act changed from No Child Left Behind (NCLB) to Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain high-quality education.  Regardless of a family's income, eligible children may participate in Title I programming.  Beaver Area's Title I program supports eligible students, K-5, with additional, targeted reading support at College Square and Dutch Ridge Elementary Schools.

Annual Notification Regarding Qualifications of Title I Teachers and Paraprofessionals

As a parent of a student who attends a school receiving Title I funds, you have a right under federal law to request information about the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct your child and the Title I paraprofessionals who assist them. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) gives you the right to ask for the following information about each of your child's classroom teachers and their paraprofessional assistants.

  • Whether the state has licensed or qualified the teacher for the grades and subjects he or she teaches.

  • Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency license or other provisional status by which state licensing criteria have been waived.

  • The teacher's college major, whether the teacher has any advanced degrees, and the subject of the degrees.

  • Whether any instructional aides or paraprofessionals provide services to your child in the Title I program and their qualifications.

If you would like to receive any of this information, please contact your child's building principal.
