Franklin Avenue School has a Schoolwide Title 1 Program - every
student is considered a Title 1 student and benefits from parts of the
program. Your school has developed a schoolwide plan which allows Title 1
funds to be combined with other federal funds to upgrade the overall
educational program of the school. All staff, resources, and classes are
part of the overall Schoolwide program.
2016-2017 Home-School Learning Compact
Title 1 funds are intended to
(add to) district programs. They are additional resources to provide
services beyond the basic educational program of a school and school
district. This may be in the form of staff, training or supplies.
Sometimes, a program or intervention is completely funded and maintained
by Title 1. In other instances, Title 1 funds are used to introduce a
new program into a school, with the goal of LEA (local educational
agency - state and local funding) taking over the costs once it is
established. An example of this is the Read180 and System 44 reading
programs. Title 1 funds may also be used to train and support staff in
new and innovative programs, even after the funding has transferred to
the district level.
Title 1 funds and/or contributes to the implementation of many programs at Franklin Ave. School:
- Small group reading assistance from a reading specialist
- Read 180 and System 44 remedial reading programs
- ST Math
- Extended Day programs for students having difficulty meeting grade-level
- A summer school program
- Family nights and parent resources
Home School Learning Compact is a written agreement between the school,
parent/guardian and student which defines the responsibilities of each
in promoting student success. Compacts are required for schools
receiving Title 1 funds.
Franklin Avenue School Family Involvement Policy -
