Title 1 Parent Involvement
Information for parents/guardians of students in Title 1 schools
BFA Fairfax and Fletcher Elementary
Research shows that parent engagement is an essential building block to ensuring student success in school. The following documents provide information on how parents can collaborate with schools and become full partners in their child's education. Principals will notify parents of the Annual Title 1 Parent Meeting, where parents can provide feedback and input on district policies and Title 1 programs.
Consolidated Federal Program (CFP) Grants
Grant Assurances are available for the public to review. FWSU schools currently participate in these grant programs: BFA Fairfax, Georgia Elementary Middle School (Title IIA only), Fletcher Elementary.
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) emphasizes equal access to education and establishes high standards and accountability. These are federally funded education programs that are administered by the states. In 2002, the ESEA was amended by Congress and reauthorized as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). The purpose of NCLB is to close the achievement gap and Title I and Title IIA federal funds are part of this goal.
Continuous Improvement Plan
FWSU works collaboratively to establish a culture of improvement by annually engaging stakeholders in conducting a Comprehensive Needs Assessment that results in a SU-wide Continuous Improvement Plan that addresses both academic and social learning needs across all member schools to ensure our students are successful and future-ready.
Local Assessment Plan
FWSU has created a streamlined, balanced, local comprehensive assessment system in the core subject areas of math and literacy. Our Assessment Framework describes the types and purposes of our state and local assessments, along with the grade levels in which they occur. The purpose of assessment is to gather evidence of student learning which can inform instruction and intervention decisions that continuously improve achievement.
