WHAT IS TITLE 1?
Title I is a federally funded program that is intended to supplement the regular classroom curriculum. Students are provided additional support on the core contents areas of ELA (Math/Science/Social Studies). The program’s goal is to support students, so that every child meets and/or exceeds the state’s standards. A variety of teaching methods and materials are used to reinforce curriculum concepts.
Amana Academy is identified as schoolwide Title I as part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). A schoolwide Title I program ensures the success of all students. Everyone has access to the numerous resources and materials purchased with Title I funds, including tablets, laptops, computer programs, books, manipulatives, and learning games. Because of Title I, you and your child have access to excellent resources and enriching programs.
WE’RE STILL TAKING YOUR INPUT:
Our school is requesting input from our stakeholders including parents, staff, and students to:
- Revise our school-family compact

The school-family compact and school parent and family engagement plan may be viewed below. For questions or assistance, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Your input is valuable and essential. Thank you!
SCHOOL COMPACT FOR SHARED STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
The Compacts are reviewed and updated annually based on feedback from parents, students, and teachers during the Parent Feedback Meeting. The School-Parent-Student compacts are distributed to parents during the beginning of each school year in order to review throughout the year
How is it developed and revised? Amana Academy welcomes parent feedback at any time regarding the Compact. All parent feedback will be used to revise the Compact for the next school year. The Compact is posted on our school website for parents to view throughout the year. Feedback can be sent at any time using the feedback form available online in our website. We also distribute an annual survey online to ask parents for their suggestions on the Compact and the use of the reserved 1% Title I funds for parent involvement. Parents can also give feedback during our end-of-the-year May Meeting to revise the Compact for the upcoming school year and have the opportunity to give input on the School-wide Compact. Any comments or feedback showing the Title I School-wide Compact is not satisfactory to parents will be submitted to the District Title I Office.
Who is it for? All students participating in the Title I program, and their families, are encouraged and invited to fully participate in the opportunities described in this Compact. Amana Academy provides complete opportunity for the participation of parents with limited English, parents with disabilities, and parents of migratory children.
Where is it available? At the beginning of the school year, the Compact is sent home with all students. The Compact is posted on the Amana Academy Title I website and we offer copies in the Front desk under Parent Involvement Folder. It is also sent home via email in our Eagle Updates newsletter.
