GCPS & SHS Title I Program Information and Documentation
Shiloh High School is identified as a Title I school as part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). Title I is designed to support State and local school reform efforts tied to challenging state academic standards in reinforcing and enhancing 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 parental involvement policy. Title I is a federally funded program resulting from the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. It is designed to help all students get a good education and meet academic standards. All students are held to the same high standards. Shiloh's schoolwide Title I program offers services and programs that help improve the education of all students.
Shiloh High School receives Title I funds which are used to pay for the following:
1) Teacher salaries (which lowers the student/teacher ratio)
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 by the Title I Committee. This committee is comprised of Shiloh parents, teachers, administrators, the Parent Coordinator, and community members. Committee members help decide which topics are offered at our Parent Workshops, how 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.
