Title I Information

The purpose of Title IA is to provide all children with a significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close the achievement gaps.  In the Windham Central Supervisory Union (WCSU), all of our schools operate as Schoolwide Title Programs.  Our schools are eligible to receive Title funds because over 40% of our student population receives free or reduced lunch.  Some of our schools do not meet the 40% requirement, however; we have been granted waivers to allow them to receive Title funds.  This means that all WCSU schools are able to use Title funds to enhance academic programs to support all students.  Title funds are used to pay for personnel, materials, assessments, professional development and other non-academic services that impact student performance, like social emotional health and attendance.  Funds are also used to support family engagement activities and schoolwide programs. Title funds are also used to support our students who are experiencing homelessness.  Additionally, we are required by federal law to share with parents your right to request information about your child’s teachers’ qualification or paraeducators’ qualifications. Section 1112 (e) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) is the “Parent’s right to know” section. It details the specifics that need to be shared with parents about their right to know information about their child’s teachers and paraeducators.
