Title I-A: Improving Basic Programs

This program provides financial assistance to LEAs and schools with high numbers or high percentages of low income children to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards.

What is Title I?
Title I is a federal program of the Elementary & Secondary Education Act (ESEA) / Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) that supports programs in schools and school districts to improve the learning of children from low-income families. The U.S. Department of Education provides Title I funds to states to give to school districts based on the number of children from low-income families in each district.
Parents May Inquire about Teacher Qualifications
Central Point School District 6 is committed to providing quality instruction for all students and does so by employing the most qualified individuals to teach and support each student in the classroom. All teachers who teach in core academic subject areas are required to be Highly Qualified.
Parents of children enrolled in a Title I School may request information concerning the professional qualifications of their child’s teacher(s) including the degrees held, certifications held, and whether the teacher is certified in the area he/she is teaching. Request for this information may be submitted to the school principal.
Highly Qualified teachers are fully certified and/or licensed by the state; hold at least a bachelor’s degree from a four-year institution; and demonstrate competence in each core academic subject area in which they teach. Oregon’s school report cards report Highly Qualified information about your school and district.
Title I schools must notify parents if their child has been assigned, or has been taught for at least four consecutive weeks by a teacher who does not meet the Highly Qualified criteria. Parents also may request information concerning whether their child is receiving instruction by a teacher assistant, and if so, his/her qualifications.
School and District Profiles
The Oregon Department of Education produces yearly profiles for schools and districts. These reports provide educators with an opportunity to communicate directly with parents and community members about how local schools are performing.
