What is Title I?
Title I provides support through resources and research-based training, enabling schools to develop high quality, enriched programs that meet the individual needs of all children, families, and staff. Title I is a federally funded program designed to improve achievement at schools with a high percentage of students eligible for free and reduced priced lunches. To qualify for school-wide program status, a school must meet the criteria of a free and reduced lunch percentage of 65% or higher.

Parent’s Right to Know
Each parent of a student at Palm Bay Elementary School has the right to request information about the professional qualifications of the student’s teacher(s) and any paraprofessionals who serve the student. This information is in our Family Engagement Binder located in our front office.
If any LEA or School Plans (e.g. Title I LEA Plan, Title I LEA PIP, Title I School PIP or SIP) are not satisfactory to the parents of participating children, the school district will submit any parent comments with the Title I, Part A plan when the school district submits the plan to the State Department of Education. Parents must be informed of their rights to submit comments. Comments received at Title I schools MUST be forwarded to the Office of Title I and those comments will be included with submission of the LEA Title I Plan, as required.
