TITLE I

Skiatook Public Schools Title I Schools:

Marrs:  Schoolwide Program

Skiatook Elementary:  Schoolwide Program

Skiatook Intermediate Elementary: Schoolwide Program

Newman Middle School: Schoolwide Program

Skiatook High School:  Schoolwide Program

Schoolwide:  Although funding is still based on the number of economically disadvantaged students, every student will receive supplemental instruction, especially in reading and math, to ensure progress and success in academics regardless of race and/or economic status.

What is Title I? Title I of the Every Student Succeeds Acts (formerly known as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001 and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)) is the largest federally funded educational program. This program, authorized by Congress, provides supplemental funds to school districts to assist schools with the highest student concentrations of poverty to meet school educational goals.

Which children are Title I children? There is a common misconception that a Title I child is a child eligible for free or reduced-price meals, but this is false. Because the Title I program at Marrs, SE, SIE, NMS, and SHS operates at the school level in the form of Schoolwide Programs all students receive Title I services.

How are schools allocated Title I funds? Once a school qualifies, funds are then allocated in the summer based on a formula developed at the state office that projects the number of qualifying children at the school for the following year. Occasionally, a further adjustment is made after the first month of school the year funds are allocated, to ensure that schools receive funds commensurate with the number of qualifying children actually enrolled.

A school qualifies based off free/reduced lunch count percentages from October 1 of the previous year.  The percentages for the 2017-18 school year are:

Marrs: 57%

SE:  52%

 SIE:  57%

 NMS:  55%

SHS:  45%

How can Title I funds be used at the school site?
Title I funds must be used to promote:

1. High academic/achievement for all children; 

2. A greater focus on teaching and learning; 

3. Flexibility to stimulate local initiatives coupled with responsibility for student performance; 

4. Improved linkages among schools, parents and communities. 

In general, funds cannot be used to purchase/lease/rent or improve facilities or provide routine transportation costs for the transport of students to and from school or supplant funds the school is already entitled to from other sources. 

Are there restrictions on using the funds to hire staff? The intent of the law is to use funds to acquire “highly qualified staff”(professionals, i.e. teachers, psychologists, social workers, etc.). Although the final draft of the law permits the use of funds for other staff, the primary focus remains on “highly qualified staff”. Schools intending on hiring non-professional staff with Title I funds should request clearance from the district Title 1 office.

Do Title I Funds follow the child if he moves to another school? As indicated in the Act, the intended purpose of these funds is to improve the school. This is why funds are allocated to schools not to children. As a result, if a child leaves a Title I school and transfers to another school, there is no transfer of Title I funds to the receiving school.

Do Private Schools also receive Title I Assistance? Federal regulations require that districts provide access to academic support services in private schools that qualify to receive Title I funds. Assistance is limited to remedial reading and/or mathematics tutorial services that support the regular instructional program for certain students in qualifying private schools. As required by federal law, these students must (1) be experiencing significant difficulty in reading and/or mathematics in their regular classes and (2) live in a neighborhood that is served by a public school that is an identified Title I school.

Title I – Program Purposes Title I Programs (Part A of PL 107-334 of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001), provide funds to districts in order to assist schools with the highest levels of economically disadvantaged youngsters to:

1. Improve in student achievement for all participating children, 

2. Improve staff development and 

3. Improve parental and community involvement. 

In accordance with federal law, funds are allocated directly to schools to work toward these three goals. Funds are allocated on a per qualifying child (child with free or reduced-price meal status) basis. Federal law requires that a district not use Title I funds to offset expenses to a Title I school that would normally be paid by other sources if Title I funds were not available.
