Title I

What is Title I?
San Jose Schools are fortunate to be a School-wide Title I school.   As such, we are provided with additional funds to help meet the needs of our student population. 
 

What is Title I?  Title I is a federally funded program that is intended to supplement the regular classroom curriculum.  Students are provided extra assistance by highly qualified teachers in reading and/or math. 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.

What does school-wide Title I mean?  A school-wide Title I program ensures the success of all San Jose students.  Everyone has access to the numerous resources and materials purchased with Title I funds, including Chromebooks, computer programs, books, manipulatives, and learning games.  All students are taught by highly qualified staff. 

How does this impact my child?  Your child has access to excellent resources, services, and programs.  Your child is taught by highly educated and effective staff.  Your family makes a difference in our school through volunteer opportunities, education classes, and parent advisory committees. 

 
Principal's Attestation
The Principals operating a Title I program must complete an attestation that the school is in compliance with the highly qualified teacher and paraprofessional requirements. The attestations must be maintained at the school office and the district office and be available to any member of the general public upon request. If you would like to review the attestation, please ask in the office of your child’s school.
