Coweta Charter Academy has been recognized as District Reward School for 2015-2016
Title 1: Targeted Assistance
What is a Targeted Assistance School?
The purpose of Title I, Part A under the Elementary and Secondary Education (ESEA) Act of 1965 is to ensure that all children have a fair and equal opportunity to achieve a high-quality education by meeting challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments. As a Title I Targeted Assistance School, CCAS receives limited funds to support additional educational programming. This funding goes toward providing additional instructional support for those students identified as having the greatest academic needs in the areas of ELA and/or Math.
What is the difference between Targeted Assistance and School Wide Programming?
To qualify as a School Wide Title I School a certain percentage of the student population must be served under the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program. Here at CCAS, we do not meet that percentage.
While Title 1, Part A under the ESEA Act of 1965 has many requirements, there is a strong emphasis on parental notification and involvement to provide considerable and meaningful opportunities to participate in the education of their children. Each school that receives funds under this part shall develop jointly with, agree on with, and distribute to parents and family members of participating children a written parental and family involvement policy. Below you will find a list of CCAS’s jointly developed documents and more. All documents will be available on the CCAS’ Title 1 webpage by October 1, 2016..
Parent and Family Involvement Policy establishes CCAS’ expectations for parental involvement and explains how the school plans to meet requirements under Title 1, Part A.
Title 1 Targeted Assistance Plan is a plan created to provide all students identified and served in the targeted-assistance program the opportunity to meet the state’s challenging student academic achievement standards.
School-Parent Compact is an agreement that outlines how parents, the school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improving student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parent will build and develop partnerships to help children achieve the state’s high standards.
Parent Engagement Surveys: If you would like to provide CCAS with constructive feedback regarding parent involvement please complete the form and return to your child’s homeroom teacher in a sealed envelope addressed to Title 1.
Parents of children participating in the Title 1 program have the right to be involved in their child’s education by requesting meetings, information related to their child’s progress and achievement, as well as, requesting and receiving information in relation to your child’s teacher qualifications.
