The Concern: Some LEAs engage their parent-teacher associations in carrying out responsibilities for activities required by the Title I program.
Title I activities must not be advertised as PTA / PTO activities, as Title I activities must not cost parents money to participate.
Meetings that involve Title I funds and information must be open and available to all Title I parents and no fee is to be charged.
This guidance does not prevent Title I parents from being a part of PTA / PTO, as the law allows for appropriate roles for community-based organizations.
Note: Title I meetings must stand alone.
Examples of announcements and agendas identifying meetings with Title I parents.
Title I meetings are conducted by school or LEA staff knowledgeable about Title I.
Interviews with principals reflect a clear understanding of the difference between Title I parent meetings and PTA meetings.
Interviews with parents reflect a clear understanding that they have opportunities to participate in Title I parent meetings, and there is no cost for the parent.
