A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended (ESEA) provides ﬁnancial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards.
CCCSC operates a school-wide program in each school building which enables support of the entire instructional program for every student.

Parents are encouraged to be involved in school activities and have opportunities to learn how to support their students throughout their school careers. Teachers and Instructional Assistants are provided opportunities to continually learn and improve their practices through individual, school and district initiatives.
Our Title I Instructional Assistants are all certiﬁed teachers or highly qualiﬁed paraprofessionals. We work with the classroom teachers to best meet the needs of our students. This may be in the classroom in small groups or one-on-one.
We encourage parent involvement. You, as parents, are the most important inﬂuences in your child’s life! Therefore, your child needs you to be involved in his/her education. Read with your child. Go over homework. Attend the school activities and events throughout the year. Also. please ﬁnd time to visit our Parent Resource Room.
