Title I, Part A, of No Child Left Behind, provides supplemental educational services to students in public and parochial schools. The purpose of the Act is to provide additional help for children so that they can acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the challenging standards that all students are expected to meet. This information is very important. It will help us continue our participation in Title I supplemental educational programs, such as reading and/or math after school programs that help our children. Your tax dollars are paying for these programs. Please help us to keep them. This school is asking for 100% participation so we can receive the allocated funding. Please take the time to fill out the Survey (the survey was emailed and can also be found in the documents section of the app). One (1) survey is needed per student. All you need to do is circle the YES or NO after each question. Your answers will be strictly CONFIDENTIAL. As an incentive, if surveys are complete, students will receive free dress passes (please see the email sent for specifics). The final date to submit the survey is May 26, 2022. Thank you for your continued support!
