Title I is a program that is funded by the federal government. It ensures that our students “have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments” (U.S. Department of Education, 2014).
Currently, Chartiers Valley Primary and Intermediate Schools provide Title I Services. All students in kindergarten through fifth grade are provided Title I Reading Services.
Eligible students work with the Title I Reading Specialist Teachers to improve reading. Reading focus areas include: Phonemic Awareness, letter recognition, blending, beginning & ending consonants, beginning & ending digraphs, onset rime, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.
Parent and Family Engagement
Parent and family engagement is a key component of a student’s education. To assist in this, various parent and family engagement activities will occur throughout the year. Parent and family engagement opportunities are held in conjunction with Federal Programs. More information about Parent and Family Engagement can be found in School Board Policy 918 on our district’s website or by clicking here.

Section 1116 of ESSA requires LEAs to provide opportunities for parents and family members to be partners and decision-makers in various aspects of the Title I program. An LEA may receive funds under Title I only if:
• The LEA conducts outreach to all parents and family members;
• The LEA implements programs, activities, and procedures for the engagement of parents and family members; and
• The LEA planned and implemented the Title I program with expectations and objectives for meaningful parent and family engagement.
