Title I Migrant Education Special Programs
Title I is a federally funded program for economically disadvantaged children who reside in school attendance areas with a high concentration of children from low income families. Since a high incidence of poverty in a school has a direct correlation with low academic student achievement, the goal of the Title I Program is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and the skills to master the Florida Standards.
The School Board of Broward County (SBBC), Title I, Part A Program supports school efforts in ensuring that all children meet challenging academic standards by providing resources to schools with economically disadvantaged students. Our district operates Title I Schoolwide programs that provide all students with access to services. These resources provide additional teachers, professional development, extra time for teaching, parent engagement activities, and other supplementary instructional activities designed to raise student achievement.
Parent's Right to Know
Parents/guardians in Title I Schools have the right to request and receive information on the professional qualifications of their child's teachers and paraprofessionals.
Parent and Family Engagement Plans
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Section 1116 requires that every district and school receiving Title I Part A funds develops a written parent and family engagement policy/plan.
