Title I

What is Title I?
Title I is the largest federally funded program that ensures that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards. The Title I program supplements the regular education programs offered in schools. Title I began through the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 by President Johnson. It has been reauthorized many times in the past years. The goal is to continue to prove parents and the advocates of the school and community to broaden ongoing school improvement that ensures learning for all. 
Title I at the Community Schools of Frankfort 
The Title I Program at the Community Schools of Frankfort supports a variety of programming for our students. Schools are eligible for Title I funding when at least 40% of the student population is deemed to be from low-income families. The schools who participate in school-wide programming from Title I include:
                        Suncrest Elementary
                        Blue Ridge Primary
                        Green Meadows Intermediate
                        Frankfort Middle School 
Title I Staff
It is required that all staff are highly qualified, meaning they have passed state certification or licensing exams, hold a bachelor's degree, and have passed the formal state evaluation or coursework in designated subject areas. Staff members for Title I in each building work towards the efforts of strengthening our schools and the skills of our students. Instructional coaches provide ongoing learning opportunities for our teachers in effective teaching practices. Interventionists provide ongoing supports based on the specific needs of students in the areas of literacy and math. 
Parental Involvement 
Parents are included in providing such supports for our schools through the required district parent involvement policy. Family nights are designed by each school to enable parents to participate in their child's education and learn about practices that can continue to support their learning at home.
