Title 1 & Parent Engagement
What Is A Title I School?
Title I schools receive federal funding to address the academic needs of students and to assist them in meeting the state’s high standards, particularly in the areas of reading, writing, science and mathematics.
Most Fort Worth ISD schools are Title I schools, meaning that under ESSA guidelines these schools must receive Title I, Part A funding specifically to support parental and family engagement activities. The Family Communications Department works with Title I schools to engage families and promote partnerships between school personnel, families, and community leaders.
