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!

2020-2021 planning has begun! Surveys have gone out to stakeholders and staff, to be completed through Google. We have had our Annual, “What is Title I?” meeting on September 28, 2020. Our Title I Evaluation and Planning meetings for next year start with a staff meeting on December 8, 2020 and for all stakeholders on December 9, 2020. Both of these meeting will be held through Zoom.  The link for the stakeholder meeting is being sent out through email, so please make sure that your current email is up to date in Backpack and that Mrs. Fernicola has you signed up for REMIND texts.

SCE’s Title I total allocation was $578,096 for 2020-2021. Many changes were made to the plan for this year due to the changes involving students attending school virtually. This has allowed us to allocate more funds for student books.

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 handout available in our document links section.

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).
