    Title I, Part A is a formula grant program that provides financial assistance to school districts and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families. Title I is the largest program supporting elementary and secondary education in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

     

    The Title I, Part A program is intended to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards, regardless of economic status. Title I is the government’s attempt to provide all children with the opportunity to receive a fair, equitable and high-quality education, and to close the achievement gap.

     

    These “supplemental” federal funds are used to:

    * Accelerate instruction for struggling students,

    * Provide professional-development for teachers, paraprofessionals, and administrators

    * Hire certified personnel

    * Provide additional resources – technology, personnel, materials, instructional programs, software

    * Encourage parent and family involvement.

     

    Bellaire has a school-wide Title 1 program. All students are Title I students and are eligible for services through Title I. Bellaire qualifies as a Title I school because we are a campus with a low-income enrollment between 40%-100%.

    At Bellaire we spend our Title I funds on:

    * Extended library hours

    * Materials: notebooks, paper, folders

    * Tutoring for STAAR, SAT, & PSAT

    * Summer School Credit Recovery

    * Parent Involvement  

    * Parent English Classes

    * 1 Graduation coach, 1 college counselor, and 3 other counselors
