Title I Overview
Components of Title I are:
- Effective Instruction
- Professional Development
- Parental Involvement
Studies show that the more parents are involved in the education of their child, the more academically successful that child will be. The goal of the Title I Parent Involvement program is to give school-based Parent Involvement Facilitators information, materials, and resources to enable them to provide for their parents at the school level. It is the job of the Facilitator to give parents the tools and resources necessary for them to help their child at home. Everyone working together in this way gives the child the best possible support for doing well in school.
The Books Bridge Bus is an exciting program that offers parents and students access to computers with internet and printing, Parent Portal, online subscriptions, free books with lesson and iPad classes.
If you have any questions regarding Title I or any other parent resources at Fort Meade Middle Senior High School please contact Jennifer Mullis, Assistant Principal, 285-1180.
