Title 1 is a federal program designed to help children obtain a high quality education and reach proficiency on state academic standards and assessments. Federal funds are used to provide supplemental educational assistance and to ensure that all students have fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high quality education.
Title 1 funds assist in paying for staff, professional development and parent involvement. Schools are selected based on free-and-reduced averages. The following Northshore schools receive Title 1 funds: Kenmore, Woodin and Woodmoor elementary schools.
No Child Left Behind Discontinued; Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Now in Effect
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaced No Child Left Behind (NCLB) on December 10, 2015, as the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). ESSA will be fully operational in the 2017-18 school year. Visit OSPI website for guidelines and information on ESSA.
Citizens Complaint Process
When a District received Federal Title I funds it allows us the opportunity to provide supplemental support programs for Title I eligible students. As a recipient of these funds we are required to inform you that if you have a complaint about the services offered under Title I and have not been able to resolve them through the District process, you may file a citizen complaint to the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).
A citizen complaint is a written statement that alleges a violation of a federal rule, law or state regulation that applies to a federal program.
- Anyone can file a citizen complaint
- There is no special form
- There is no need to know the law that governs a federal program to file a complaint
