NCLB and Title I SchoolsPURPOSE of Title I

In 2001, the federal government passed the NCLB Act which provided identified schools with federal funds for the purpose of supplementing the instructional program of schools to ensure a high quality education for students that would help them meet the state standard (currently STAAR – State of Texas Assessment for Academic Readiness).

These “supplemental” federal funds are used to:

  • Accelerate instruction for struggling students,

  • Provide professional-development for teachers and paraprofessionals,

  • Hire highly qualified personnel,

  • Give additional resources – technology, personnel, materials, instructional programs, software, and

  • Encourage parent and family involvement.

Ideas for student success
Ideas for Student Success

  • Check your child’s planner everyday - all teachers require students to write down daily assignments and homework.

  • Have a specific place and designated time (the earlier the better) to do homework – have your child do homework as soon as he/she gets home from school.

  • Have your child review the day’s work and notes with you - this will help your child remember what he learned.

Make up work
Make Up Work

  • When a child is absent from school, extra time( five school days – HISD policy) will be given to hand in assignments, exceptions will be off campus choir performance or science fair.

  • Any missed test days will be made up the following class day.

Grade reporting
Grade reporting:

How will I know what my child is doing and if he is doing it?

  • Progress reports every 3 weeks and report cards every 9 weeks

  • Email or call teachers once in between reports

  • You may also access PS Connect to check your student’s current grade

Do s and don ts

Do review their class notes with them each day.

Do read the literature with them and discuss it to be sure they understand.

Do encourage them to ask questions and seek help.

Do review their work and encourage them to do their best.

Please don’t:

Redo their writing assignments - resist the temptation to revise and edit your child’s paper. It is important that I see each child’s true abilities - strengths and weaknesses - in order to help them improve.
