Title I Schoolwide Parent Involvement Policies

Schoolwide Title I is a Federally Funded Program


Title I Schoolwide Parent Involvement Policies


A Title I school is eligible to become a Title I Schoolwide Program when the poverty level, (determined by free and reduced meal counts, Aid for Dependent Children [AFDC], census, or Medicaid) is at or above 40%.

Schoolwide programs serve all children in a school. All staff, resources, and classes are part of the overall Schoolwide program. The purpose is to generate high levels of academic achievement in core subject areas for all students, especially those students most in need. This purpose is achieved through:

  • High quality instruction
  • Comprehensive reform strategies and methods that are based on the use of scientifically based research
  • Strategies and methods to improve teacher quality and professional development
  • Consolidated use of funds


We are required by law to have on file a Parent Involvement Compact. The following is a suggested Parent Involvement Compact to be adopted at the annual Title I meeting on Thursday, October 24, 2019 at 6:45 p.m. in Mrs. Shupe’s room, #502.


The Illini West High School District #307 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), 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.


This parent involvement compact is in effect during the 2019-20 school year.
