2021-2022 Title I Information for Sue Cleveland

Sue Cleveland Elementary is hard at work every day, building a strong foundation that will allow for student success and provide the necessary ingredients to build our students into College or Career Ready Graduates.

Please note that all of our teachers are certified in the grades that they teach as well as the paraprofessionals in our building.

We believe in keeping our partnership strong with our parents and community.  We can't do it alone; our student’s academic success requires all of us working together!

The 2021-2022 school year has begun! Before you know it, we will be planning for the school year 2022-2023!  Surveys will be sent out in October to stakeholders and staff, to be completed through Google.  Our Annual, "What is Title I?" meeting is scheduled for August 12, 2021.  the PowerPoint will be posted through a link on this page as well.  Our Title I Evaluation and Planning Meetings for next year start with a staff meeting on November 30, 2021 and for all stakeholders a public meeting on November 18, 2021.  We hope to do it in person, but if not, we will hold virtually and post the info on the SCE webpage.  Please make sure that your current email and phone numbers are up to date in Backpack and that Mrs. Fernicola has you signed up for REMIND texts.  We will also be using SeeSaw to communicate this year as our school wide communication platform.

SCE’s Title I total allocation was up from 2020-2021 to $670,519.92 for 2021-2022. With these funds we have been able to hire an additional class size reduction teacher, Interventionist, Instructional Coach for primary teachers and a Behavior Specialist, along with our Parent and Family Engagement Coordinator.  We also have purchased site licenses that students can use in school and at home along with instructional supplies.

What is Title I?  

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015. This bipartisan measure reauthorizes the 50 year old Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) the nation’s national education law and longstanding commitment to equal opportunity of all students. The reauthorized law sets high standards and contains policies that will help prepare all students for success in college and future careers.

We have a schoolwide Title I program at SCE, where ALL children benefit from Title I funds. You have a right to be involved in your child's education and we invite you to be a part of the yearlong Title I planning process. Please see our online calendar for meetings dates and times. Additionally, information is sent home in weekly teacher newsletters, and by the Principal’s weekly phone message. There is a quick reference brochure available titled, What is Title I? in our document and links section.  Our schoolwide Title I Documents and Links will be updated throughout the year.

Our Suggestion Box is temporarily suspended during COVID, but please feel free to call us or to send an email to me or to Lara, (scroll down for that info).   

 We keep a copy of our Title I Plan and our School Report Card on our website when they are updated.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions or concerns!
