Title I

Research shows that parent involvement in education is crucial. No matter their income or background, students with involved parents are more likely to have higher grades and test scores, attend school regularly, have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school.

The Seminole County District Title I Program promotes the belief that all children can learn and acknowledges that parents share the schools' commitment to education success for all students. We recognize that positive paren/family engagement is essential to student achievement and we enourage parental involvement in school education planning and operations.

English Estates Elementary is a Title I school.  

The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), or the Reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), was signed into law on January 8, 2002, and represents the most significant changes to educational policy in over 35 years. The new law expands the role of the federal government in K-12 education and focuses on four principles: 

  • expanded options for parents 
  • increased accountability for results 
  • instruction based on proven educational methods 
  • increased flexibility and local control 

NCLB includes Title I - Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged, which is the largest source of federal aid to elementary and secondary schools. The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education, and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments. 

Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS) receives an annual entitlement allocation of federal dollars to provide resources to meet the purpose of Title I. Schools that have high percentages of children who qualify for free or reduced lunch receive an allocation, which is spent on resources to support the purpose of Title I and the goals of their School Improvement Plan. Part A funds must also be used to provide appropriate services to homeless children, children in local institutions for neglected children, and to ensure that private schools receive 'equitable' services. 

Schools in Seminole County that receive Title I resources are: 16 elementary schools, two middle schools, two special centers, and five non-public schools under Part A. Part A funds are also used for tutoring at two shelters for homeless families, Eugene Gregory Consequences Center, and Girls and Boys.
