What is Title I?
Title I is a federal funded program resulting from the No Child
Left Behind Act of 2001. It is designed to help all students get a
good education and meet academic standards. All students are held
to the same high standards. Shiloh's schoolwide Title I program
offers services and programs that help improve the education of all
students. Shiloh MS receives thousands of Title I dollars
which is used to pay for the following:
1) teacher salaries (which lowers the student/teacher
2) staff development and release time for teachers to plan
3) extended learning time programs
4) purchasing technology for classrooms
5) purchasing consumable and non-consumable teaching
6) paying presenters and childcare providers at parent
7) purchasing materials and resources for the Parent Center
8) learning experiences
All decisions regarding the Title I Program are made during our
the Title I Planning Meetings. This meeting is comprised
of Shiloh parents, teachers, administrators, the Parent
Coordinator, and community members. Those who attend the
meeting help decide which topics are offered at our Parent
Workshops, how the Title I funds should be spent, what materials
should be purchased for the Parent Center, writing, revising, and
approving Title I Documents, and help analyze data based on our
end-of-the-year parent surveys.
