Title I

The Westfield Board of Education receives Federal Title I Targeted Assistance Funds to support the Title I Program.

In planning the Title I Targeted Assistance Program, consideration was given to the following:
  • Extending learning time
  • Providing an accelerated, high-quality curriculum
  • Minimizing "pull-out" instruction
  • Providing instruction by highly qualified staff
  • Upgrading staff skills through additional training
  • Using strategies such as family literacy services to increase parent involvement
  • Coordinating and supporting the regular educational program, including such services as counseling, mentoring, college and career awareness and preparation
  • Helping students to make transitions, such as those from early childhood programs and from school work.
Westfield Public Schools Title I Program is designed to meet educational needs of those students identified as scoring below the district's minimum standards in English Language Arts and/or Mathematics.

School/Family/Community Involvement

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires schools to involve parents of public and private school students in the development, implementation, and annual review of school programs for Title I students. The ESEA further requires that "schools engage parents in regular, 2-way communication that is meaningful and pertains to academic learning and other school activities". The parent involvement requirements for schools and districts serving students through Title I are:

    • District Parent Involvement Policy
    • Parent Involvement Policy for Title I Schools
    • School-Parent Compact
    • Annual Meeting for Title I parents
    • Parent Notification
