The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 provided the foundation for the grant program known as “Title I”. Title I monies are awarded to schools based on the percentage of low-income families. The grant money is used to supplement the education of the students to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education.
The five elementary campuses in Red Oak ISD are Title I campuses.
What does it mean to be a Title I School?
We receive federal funds to provide extra help for all students at the campus.
The amount of money depends on the number of students who receive free or reduced lunch.
The money supplements the educational experience on the campus. It is used for teachers, tutoring, paraprofessionals, high-qualify staff professional development, books, supplies, and materials.
How can you help?
Attend the parent information meetings and PTA meetings at your campus.
Be involved in your child’s education.
Volunteer at the campus often.
Become familiar with the School-Parent Compact and Parental Involvement Policy
Title I campuses believe in and rely upon the partnership between school and home to ensure that their students succeed. We hope you will feel welcome to be a part of your child’s school experience and a part of the success of the campus!
