Parent Involvement in New Jersey Title I Schools
Title I is a federal program under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as reauthorized by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). Title I covers the fiscal and program requirements for improving the academic achievement of students who attend schools eligible for Title I. The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.
Each district that receives Title I, Part A funds must develop a written parental involvement policy that establishes a district's expectations for parent involvement. Below please find links to Ewing Township Public Schools communications regarding parent involvement.
The Parent-School Compact defines the shared responsibility for improving student academic achievement.
A school district that receives Title I funds must implement programs, activities, and procedures for the involvement of parents in programs assisted by Title I funding. This policy was revised and approved by the Ewing Board of Education on February 11, 2011
