TITLE I-A

Title I-A is intended to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments. Title I-A targets these resources to the districts and schools where the needs are greatest. Title I-A provides flexible funding that may be used to provide additional instructional staff, professional development, extended-time programs, and other strategies for raising student achievement in high-poverty schools.

The program focuses on promoting schoolwide reform in high-poverty schools and ensuring students' access to evidence based instructional strategies and challenging academic content. Title I-A provisions provide a mechanism for holding states, school districts, and schools accountable for improving the academic achievement of all students and turning around low-performing schools, while providing alternatives to students in such schools to enable those students to receive a high-quality education.

AHCS is a "Targeted Assistance" school, which receives Title I funds but is ineligible for a schoolwide program at this time. A Targeted Assistance school may use funds received only for programs that provide services to eligible children identified as having the greatest need for special assistance.are

AHCS is applying for a waiver to become a "School Wide Title I" school.

Parent Involvement

We hope to encourage and facilitate parental involvement. Research shows that regardless of family income or background, students with involved parents are more likely to:

  • Earn higher grades and test scores, and enroll in higher-level programs
  • Be promoted, pass their classes, and earn credits
  • Attend school regularly
  • Have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school
  • Graduate and go on to postsecondary education

AHCS will be adding documents and resources to this page as a source location for parents, educators and stakeholders.
