School Improvement/Title I Meetings
Parent and Family Engagement
Parent Involvement Plan – Each school served under Title I is required to jointly develop with, and distribute to, parents of participating children a written parental involvement policy, agreed on by such parents. Parents shall be notified of the policy in an understandable and uniform format and, to the extent practicable, provided in a language the parents can understand. Such policy shall be made available to the local community and updated periodically to meet the changing needs of parents and the school. Note: This plan is distinct from the district parent involvement policy, but may be aligned when appropriate.
Maintain electronic and/or hard copies of agendas, meeting minutes, sign-in sheets, newsletter, etc.
Attestations for Highly Qualified Staff – Each Title I principal is required to annually attest to the highly qualified status of school level personnel. The completed/signed Attestation should be maintained on file at the school and a copy should be forwarded to the Federal Programs office for Moore County Schools.
Accessing Title I Funds – Title I schools will use the forms/templates below to create an annual budget, to submit funding proposals during the school year and to provide support documentation for accounts payable.
Annual Budget Plan – The Annual Budget Plan spreadsheet is to be used each spring for budget planning. Principals should work with their school improvement teams to design the budget based on a comprehensive needs assessment. The Federal Programs office will review this document with MCS Senior Staff and a pdf of the approved document will be returned to the principal/bookkeeper.
Title I Funding Proposal – To draw down funds from the approved Annual Budget Plan during the school year, this proposal form should be submitted to the Federal Programs office for approval. Once approved, an appropriate accounting code will be provided and the form will be returned to the principal/bookkeeper.
