Northbrook is Title I • How did we become a Title I Campus? • Based on the number of Students who qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch in the School District. • At Northbrook in the 2012-2013 School year, we had 65.6% of our students qualify. • What does this mean for our campus? • Title I is a federal program designed to help students who need additional support in Reading or Math—not only students who qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch. • We receive federal funds because of our Title I status. • At Northbrook, Title I money is used to fund 3 teachers: Our Math Specialist, our Reading Specialist, and our Literacy Coach.
Title 1 Compact • Designed to set expectations for a life time of successful learning • Written by teachers and parents at this school • Needs to read TOGETHER and discussed • MUST be signed by parents & students and returned the first week
Attendance • 90% Rule • Texas Compulsory Attendance law requires that students must be in attendance 90% of the school year in order to receive credit for that year. An absence can be all day or partial day. Tardies can be considered for this state law and also for truancy. • Attendance and being on time is IMPORTANT! • NEW for 2012-2013 Students arriving late will need an adult to sign them into school in the office. • Your child should be at school unless they are sick. • If you have a scheduled appointment for something other than illness, it is important that your child attend school for the other part of the school day. • School starts at 7:40 and dismisses at 2:40. • Truancy will be filed on your student if they miss school excessively and the absences are not excused.
