Title I Services
Information about Title I
Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended (ESEA) provides financial assistance to school districts and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. For more information about Title I from a federal perspective, click here.
School districts allocate the Title I funds they receive to schools with the highest percentages of children from low-income families. At this time, Mooresville Consolidated School Corporation operates “schoolwide” programs at four of our elementary schools. The schools that are currently serviced are Neil Armstong Elementary, Newby Memorial Elementary, North Madison Elementray, and Northwood Elementary.
Title I Mission:
Title I supports the district’s mission by creating learning opportunities for children to acquire the knowledge and skills contained in the state’s challenging content standards in reading and mathematics.
Title I Goals:
To provide support to students in meeting state standards in reading and mathematics
To supplement classroom reading and mathematics instruction
To involve parents in their child’s education in as many ways as possible
Schoolwide programming is a process of school improvement. The purpose of a schoolwide program is to improve the academic success of all students at the school. A school is eligible to become a Title 1 schoolwide program if it has a poverty level of at least 40% and it is receiving Title 1 funds. A schoolwide school uses the Title 1 funds to upgrade the entire educational program of the school. The Title 1 funds can be used to serve ALL students. A schoolwide program requires schools to reform strategies that raise the academic achievement level of all students. Schoolwide programs serve all the students in a school.
The Title I schools within the Mooresville Consolidated School District use the Title I staff to meet with intervention groups during Tier II time called "SUCCESS". They also meet with Tier III intervention groups through out the day to ensure student growth and
achievement in meeting the Indiana College and Career Readiness standards.
Mooresville Consolidated School Corporation believes strongly in parent involvement. We want to partner with parents in their child’s education. To ensure parents are included in the Title I program, the law defines the importance and requirements of parent involvement in Title I schools. One such requirement is a District Parent Involvement Policy. These are mailed at the beginning of the school year. You may click here to review the document. In addition, each Title I school must jointly develop and distribute its own written parental involvement policy. Also, each school receiving Title I funds must develop a school-parent compact that outlines how parents, the entire school staff, and students will share responsibility for improving student achievement. These were also in the mailing at the beginning of the school year.
Parents are encouraged to volunteer at school, to attend parent conferences and open house, and to work closely with their child at home and with the teachers at school. Parents are invited to participate in literacy and math night and other events and parent activities available at their child's school.
