Title I, Part A, Improving Basic Programs
Title I is a federally funded grant program that provides supplemental resources to the district to provide additional support for schools that serve children in our highest-poverty /highest-mobility schools. 
Research has shown that these risk factors make learning more difficult. Student need is recognized by the percentage of students in a school who qualify for free or reduce priced meals.
 
The services and programs these funds support help ensure that all children, particularly low-achieving children, have an equal educational opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and State academic assessments. 
 
Title I programs often include:
  • Smaller class sizes for interventions in reading and math
  • Reading Specialists and additional teaching assistants
  • Additional training or coaching for staff in reading, writing or math instruction
Schools identified as “Title I School-wide Programs” are:  
East Gresham Elementary School
Hall Elementary School
Hogan Cedars Elementary School
Hollydale Elementary School
Highland Elementary School
North Gresham Elementary School
 

Parent Right-to-Know
Upon the request of a parent, a school receiving Title I federal funds must disclose, in a timely manner:

  • Whether the teacher has met state licensure requirements for the grade level and/or subject area in which they are currently teaching.
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or provisional status through which state licensing criteria have been waived.
  • Whether the child is provided services by an instructional assistant (paraprofessional), and if so, their qualifications.
  • In addition to notification of their right to request information on the professional qualifications of their child’s teacher, schools must also provide timely notice to parents if a child is assigned to, or has been taught for more than four consecutive weeks by a teacher that is not highly qualified under the definition of federal law.
 

Parental Involvement
Parent Involvement is a critical piece in developing Title I plans that best meet the needs of all the students in a school. Gresham-Barlow parents are encouraged to participate in the schools' parent-teacher organizations.

Parents of students in Title I schools and parents of participating Migrant students have a right to review and give input on the development of the Gresham-Barlow School District Title I Parent Involvement Policy.
