Title 1 Facilitator
Welcome Elementary is proud to be a Title I school. The goal, of Title I, is for every child to receive a quality education. Title I funds are based on the number of students who qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch. We are a school-wide program that serves all Welcome students.
Some of the ways that Title I money is spent at Welcome is as follows:
Within the Title I program it is recognized that involved parents are important for student success. Parents have the right to know how their child is progressing academically and how the school is performing on state tests. Parents can request information about their child's teachers' qualifications. Parents also have the opportunity to give input through surveys, evaluations, and serving on the Title I Planning Committee to help develop the school Title I plan.
Parents can participate in the education process in many ways. Parents have the opportunity to attend teacher conferences and school events. Supervising homework is another great way to help. Parents can always observe in your child's classroom and volunteer.
As a Title I school, it is our responsibility to inform parents of our academic progress as it relates to Adequate Yearly Progress. Welcome met AYP again this year. It is our goal to meet Adequate Yearly Progress again next year for the 2010-11 school year
