    Three questions teach teens to get things done

    Spending hours at a desk won't help if your teen isn't really studying. To help her stop procrastinating and make the best use of her study time, have your teen ask herself these questions: What is one task I can do to get closer to my goal? (She'll learn that small steps make big projects easier.) How did I just waste time? (She'll learn her own pitfalls.) Can I do one more thing? (She'll learn that stretching herself pays off.) http://niswc.com/36cBC326428

    Work on the basics of self-reliance

    Will your teen be ready for life after graduation? The answer may lie in how much he can do without help. Teens who are ready to be on their own at college or to handle a job can get themselves up and out in the morning and stay alone responsibly. They can balance school and outside activities, and manage their time. They know how to say "no," and how to set and work toward goals for the future. http://niswc.com/36cCC326428

    Literacy is a gift your teen can share

    If your teen is looking for a volunteer job, suggest she help children learn to read better. She can contact an elementary school and ask if she could be partnered with a child for reading, or volunteer as a reader at a local library. She could collect books and donate them to a shelter, or ask businesses to donate to reading programs. She'll be sharing one of the most important ways to get ahead in school and life. http://niswc.com/36cDC326428

    Have your teen create a personal reference sheet

    "How many c's and how many m's are there in accommodate?" Your teen won't always have his phone handy, but by creating a personal reference section in his binder, he'll always have the answers he needs. It might include lists of words he has trouble spelling, tricky math formulas or historical facts. Have him write his lists down on sheets of paper. Putting them in plastic sleeves will help them last. http://niswc.com/36cEC326428

    Help your teen recover from a poor choice

    All teens make poor choices sometimes. When your teen makes one, help her run through four R's experts say are key to recovery: 1. Recognition. Your teen should identify what she did that caused the problem. 2. Responsibility. She must accept that she was in error. 3. Reconciliation. She should apologize to anyone she's hurt. 4. Resolution. She should come up with a fix that is satisfactory to all involved. http://niswc.com/36cFC326428

What is Title I?

  • Title I is a federal program that provides funds to schools and districts based upon the percentage of students qualifying to receive free or reduced price (school) meals.  The purpose is to ensure that all children have access to quality instruction and resources that will enable them to meet state academic standards.

    1. Teacher salaries (which lowers the student/teacher ratio - to allow for individual, small group, and differentiated instruction)
    2. Staff development and release time for teachers to plan instruction
    3. Extended learning time programs
    4. Purchasing technology for classrooms
    5. Purchasing consumable and non-consumable teaching materials
    6. Paying presenters and childcare providers at parent workshops
    7. Purchasing materials and resources for the Parent Center
    8. Learning experiences

    All decisions regarding the Title I Program are made with the input of all stakeholders during the school's Title I Planning Meeting and Documents Review Period (and any other opportunities that parents are given to provide input). The stakeholders help decide which topics are offered at our Parent Workshops, how the Title I funds should be spent, what materials should be purchased for the Parent Center, writing, revising, and approving Title I Documents, and help analyze data based on our end-of-the-year parent surveys.

Parent Right to Know

  • Parents have the right to request information about the degree and qualifications of their child's teacher(s) and paraprofessional(s), if applicable.  Please refer to the GCPS Student-Parent Handbook or contact your school's principal for more information.
