A Parent's Guide to Title I
What is Title I?
Title I is the largest federally funded program for elementary, middle, and high schools. Title I helps students, teachers, and parents!
Through Title I, money is given to school districts around the country based on the number of low-income families in each district. Each district uses its Title I money for extra educational services that target children most in need of educational help. The focus of the Title I program is helping these students meet the same high expectations as all children. All schools in the Pass Christian Public School District receive Title I, Part A funds.

Parent & Family Engagement
Pass Christian High School understands that parent and family engagement means the
participation of parents and families in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication
involving student academic learning and other school activities, including ensuring:
● Parents and families play an integral role in assisting their child’s learning
● Parents and families are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education at school
● Parents and families are full partners in their child’s education and are included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child
Pass Christian Public School District and the parents of the students participating in activities, services, and programs funded by Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) (participating children) agree that this compact outlines how the parents, the entire school staff, and the students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership that will help children achieve the State’s high standards.
