Title I Supplemental Educational Services

title i

Federal Grants to school districts through Title I, Part A provide opportunities for children to acquire the knowledge and skills to meet the state proficiency standards. This purpose is accomplished in two ways: (1) by providing children supplemental support through enriched and accelerated education programs; and (2) by providing instructional personnel in participating schools with substantial opportunities for professional development.

In Concord, Title I funds are used to provide in-school reading and math support and extended day and year learning opportunities, parent support through an Extended Learning/Family Resource Facilitator, preschool experiences and educational supplies and materials to be used with eligible students. Title i

Criteria for Title I eligibility
for students is based on a common assessment. If school teams deem a child "academically disadvantaged", they will determine the most appropriate intervention, some of which may include meeting with Title I teachers to provide supplemental support to classroom instruction on targeted skills in which the child lacks proficiency. Students will receive targeted interventions and be monitored for success. Families will be notified if their child is eligible for Title I services. If families agree for their child to receive Title I support, then progress reports will be issued for students who receive those services. For more information, please see "Parents Guide to Title I Services" in the Title I Files section below.  

Parental involvement is a large part of the Title I program. The links below provide access to parent involvement policies, school progress reports, and new and existing programs. If you have questions, please contact your child’s Title I educator.

Dear Parents,

At the beginning of each school year, the Concord School District which receives Title I funds must notify parents of each student attending any Title I school that the parents may request, and the Concord School District will provide the parents on request, and in a timely manner, information regarding the professional qualification of the student’s classroom teachers, including at minimum the following:

  • Whether the teacher has met State qualifications for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;

  • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other professional status that the State has waived;

  • The degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher and the field of discipline of the certification or degree; and

  • Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and if so their qualifications.


Additional Information – In our Concord School District schools that receive Title I funds, we must provide to each individual parent

  • Information on the level of achievement the child has made on all state assessments; and

  • Timely notice that the parent’s child has been assigned or taught for 4 or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not highly qualified.
