What is Title I?
Adamson Middle School is identified as a Title I school as part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Title I is designed to support State and local school reform efforts tied to challenging State academic standards in order to reinforce and enhance efforts to improve teaching and learning for students. Title I programs must be based on effective means of improving student achievement and include strategies to support parental involvement. All Title I schools must jointly develop with all parents, a written parent & family engagement policy. Adamson Middle School jointly developed this Parent and Family Engagement Policy with all stakeholders: parents, students and school staff through a series of Title I meetings held in the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. All stakeholders were given the opportunity to provide input through meetings, input forms and comment cards. The plan was then revised according to this input that was received by ALL stakeholders.
