Title 1 Compact

Meadow View Elementary School 2017-2018

Title I Home and School Compact

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Title I in a nationwide program funded by the federal government to provide extra educational assistant to

underachieving students. The goal of Title I is to bring these students’ skills up to grade level and to improve student

achievement on the statewide assessment. The intent of the Title I Program in the Hardin County Schools is to help

students master challenging curricula and learn to the same high state standards that other children are expected to

meet. Schools become eligible to receive Title I services when their free and reduced lunch counts reach at least 35%.

In the Hardin County Schools’ Title I Program, schools operate as Schoolwide Programs. In Schoolwide Program

Schools, Title I staff members may work with any child in the school experiencing academic difficulties. The goal of a

school wide program is to assist all students to achieve high test scores on the statewide assessment. All Hardin County

Schools participate as Schoolwide Program Schools.

Meadow View teachers are committed to building strong parent-school partnership. This partnership will allow

us to work together to achieve maximum success for all students by using the school district and state guided

curriculum, quality instruction and assignments. We recognize that you, the parent are your child’s first and most

important teacher.

Research has proven that a parent’s continued involvement is essential for student success. Therefore, we have

developed this contract to show you what we will be working on throughout the school year and share some ideas

about what you can work on at home with your child.
