My mission is to monitor, coach, and assist teachers in providing a rigorous and relevant curriculum to meet the variety of student educational needs and to build relationships with parents that will impact student academic achievement.


    What is Title One?

    • Title 1 is a federal fund.
    • The intention of Title 1 is to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach grade-level proficiency.
    • Title 1 funds helps students who are behind academically or at risk of falling behind.
    • Funds are only used to help students reach proficiency in the following academic subjects: English Language Arts and Mathematics.
    • Title 1 never replaces what other students receive (it is supplemental to the regular program).
    • Title 1 uses research based practices.
    How Is Title I School Funding Determined?
    • Title 1 is a federal entitlement program (non-competitive formula).
    • It is allocated on the basis of student enrollment for ages 5-17, the census poverty levels, and other data.
    • The U.S. Department of Education distributes these funds to State Education Agencies that in turn, distribute the funds to local education agencies or school districts.
    • Local school districts allocate the funds to qualifying schools based on the number of poor children in a school.
    Title I Must…
    • Involve parents in all phases of planning and provide opportunities for involvement and parent trainings.
    • Establish a compact between the parent and school outlining expectations.
    • Share information with parents on their child’s progress and progress of the school toward the accomplishments of goals set forth in the plan.
    • Inform parents when schools have sanctions placed on them due to not meeting the AYP standards.
    This Year's Title Funds at JPES...
    • This year our Title funds will be providing the System 44 Literacy Program for third grade (Mrs. Yvette Clark-Blake), a school-wide STEAM Coach and Math interventionist at third grade (Ms. Laura Hudson), and a school-wide Math Coach and Math interventionist at fourth and fifth grades (Mrs. Robin Vonkeller).
    • Title funds will also be used for professional development for our teachers, classroom instructional materials, technology integration, and all the food, supplies, and materials for our parenting events.
