This section of the website will serve as an informational tool for parents with students enrolled in our elementary schools. Below are attachments for district and school level policies on Title I and Parental Involvement. Also, there are attachments for the Home/School Involvement Compacts. The forms will be handed out at each school in the beginning of each school year.
Title I is a 100% Federally funded supplemental education program that provides financial assistance to local educational agencies to improve educational opportunities for educationally deprived children. Title I programs are designed to help children meet the state content and performance standards in reading, language arts, and mathematics. In buildings with 40% or more poverty, Local Education Agencies (LEAs/school districts) may use the funds to upgrade the entire curriculum of the school and are Schoolwide Programs. LEAs and schools are subject to consequences of school choice and supplemental education services if they do not meet adequate yearly progress as determined by the State Education Agency (SEA/Pennsylvania Department of Education, Federal Programs). All of the elementary schools within Northern Tioga School District (grades K-6) are Schoolwide Title I schools therefore all elementary school students are considered Title I.
If you have any questions or concerns about Title I and Northern Tioga School District please contact Amy Coots (firstname.lastname@example.org or 814-258-5644 ext. 1036).
