Title I Schoolwide Program

  • Northeast Elementary School implements a schoolwide Title I program. This supplemental program provides additional resources to students and staff. These resources include additional instructional staff, instructional materials, parent programs, and professional development. The amount of funding for each school is based upon the percent of students meeting the criteria for Free and Reduced Meals. The School Improvement Plan outlines the focus of the Title I schoolwide program. Parents are invited to review and comment on this plan at any time. Copies of the plan are in the school office.

    The Title I program is part of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. As part of this legislation, parent input and involvement are recognized as key components in student success. A summary of the school’s Parent Involvement Plan is distributed to all families. Parents are encouraged to participate in the following opportunities: 
    • School Improvement Plan
    • Parent Involvement Plan
    • Home – School Compacts
    • Parent Involvement Budget
    • Annual Review of the Allegany County Parent Involvement Plan
    1. The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires that all teachers and paraprofessionals in Title I schools be highly qualified. This requirement has been met by all Title I schools in Allegany County. Parents may request information regarding the highly qualified status of their child's teacher and instructional assistant by contacting in writing the Office of Human Resources at the Allegany County Board of Education. Parents will be notified in writing by the school if a substitute teacher is in the classroom for four or more weeks and is not highly qualified.
    2. Parents may voice complaints regarding the implementation of the Title I schoolwide program. Complaint forms may be obtained in the school office or by clicking here.
