TITLE I OVERSIGHT
The SSC also oversees the educational needs of economically disadvantaged students and Title I funds. Title I participants include students who are at risk of failing in school. The program funds supplemental services needed to raise the academic achievement of students in grades K through 12. Additional support may be provided through staff development, health, and guidance services.
The SSC works to increase academic achievement. Parents have the opportunity to participate in the design and implementation of the program through activities such as developing a parent policy, home-school compacts, parent training, and volunteer participation in school activities.
