  • Their school’s participation in Title I
  • The requirements of Title I and parents’ right to be involved
  • The 1% set-aside for Parent Involvement and their right to be
  • involved in how funds will be spent
  • Note: Parents should leave the meeting with a clear
  • understanding of being informed about the Title I Program
  • and their rights as Title I Parents.
slide7

SDE Guidance on Required Annual Meeting of Title I Parents (Continued)

  • Important to Remember…
  • At the Annual Meeting of Title I Parents, clearly
  • communicate the process for various involvement-how
  • they may have input on LEA plans, the school’s plan,
  • the 1% set-aside, the annual evaluation, the school-
  • parent compact, etc.
  • Then throughout the year, provide additional
  • communication about involvement opportunities
  • as applicable-Notices sent home, Web site, parent
  • leaders, newsletters.
slide8

SDE Guidance on Required Annual Meeting of Title I Parents (Continued)

  • SDE Template for Conducting the Annual Meeting of
  • Title I Parents
  • To assist schools in focusing their Annual Meeting of
  • Title I Parents on required topics, the SDE has
  • developed a PowerPoint template, which is available
  • in the e-Gap Document Library.
  • Schools will need to customize the PowerPoint to
  • reflect local information, processes, procedures, etc.
slide9

Compliance with the required Annual Meeting of Title I Parents is evident when…

  • Parent interviews reflect attendance at their school’s
  • annual meeting where they learned about the
  • requirements of Title I law and multiple opportunities
  • for involvement. They know about the 1% set-aside for
  • parent involvement and their right to be involved in
  • how funds will be spent. Parents understand the
  • processes of how decisions are made and their
  • opportunity for input.
  • Sign-in-sheets for the school’s annual meeting are
  • available with name, position, and signatures.
  • An agenda of the school’s annual meeting is available
  • with appropriate Title I topics addressed.
