About Title I
Translation of SIP/Translation of various languages:
Title I schools must have the entire School Improvement Plan translated in the language(s) of parents of enrolled students. Translated School Improvement Plans must be placed in the campus’ Title I bin as well as made available in the front office. Although it is “best practice” to have the SIP’s available in all languages (as spoken by the parents represented at your campus), the External Funding Department highly suggests where there is at least 10% of any parent population who speak such language(s) that the document must be translated in those languages.
Purpose of the Title I, Part A Program:
The Houston Independent School District (HISD) will implement the No Child Left Behind requirements regarding its Title I, Part A, schools. HISD is committed to engage parents, community members, and businesses in partnerships that support student achievement. The goal is to ensure that all of its students graduate from high school ready to succeed in the college or career of their choice. HISD recognizes that parents are valued partners and they play an extremely important role in the educational process, serving as the child's first teacher in their early years of development. Therefore, HISD encourages the participation of parents in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving student learning and other school activities.
