Title I

Title I Information

Schools are identified to receive Title I funds based on their percentage of students who qualify for Free and Reduced-Price Meals. As a result of participation in Title I, schools receive a supplemental allocation to provide additional staffing, extended day opportunities, family involvement and professional development activities as well as supplemental purchases of materials and equipment.

Questions about Title I can be directed to the TCPS Title I Coordinator, James P. Redman, 410-822-0330.

At our Title I Schools (and all TCPS schools) we welcome and encourage parents and families to be involved and actively engaged in their child’s education. Parents are invited to participate in a number of ways:

  • Join your School Improvement Team and have a voice in setting goals, celebrating progress and identifying areas for growth
  • Join your school PTA or PTO and help plan school events for students and families
  • Participate in your school’s Parent Advisory Committee and be a voice for parents
  • Volunteer in your child’s classroom
  • Come read to students in your school
  • Submit comments and feedback on Title I Parent and Family Engagement Plan
  •  Attend monthly Board of Education meetings - View Meeting Schedule

If you are interested in more information about any of these activities, please contact Emily Moody, TCPS Family Liaison at (410) 822-0550 or by e-mail at emoody(at)talbotschools.org.
