Perry Street Preparatory Public Charter School

PreK - 8 School » Title I

Title I

Perry Street Prep is the recipient of federal Title I moneys as part of the
Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). Title I money is used solely
to help ensure that children, regardless of family income, have the
opportunity to obtain a quality education and become academically
proficient.

Perrry Street Prep implements a Title I Schoolwide Program model. A school
is eligible to become a Title I Schoolwide Program if 40% or more of the
students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Eligible schools are permitted
to use Title I, Part A funds in combination with state and local resources
and other federal education program funds to upgrade the entire educational
program of the school to raise the academic achievement of all students.

Perry Street funds initiatives to improve students reading and math
achievement with Title I funding. For the 2015-16 school year the school is
focusing on turnaround efforts to improve student outcomes on state tests in
reading and math, enhancing the home-school connection, and improving
achievement in early-childhood grades of K-2 through reduced class sizes and
additional staffing to support instructional delivery and planning.

Parents are a critical voice in shaping the school's Title I efforts. Each
year the school seeks parent input on the Title I plan. Additionally, a
schoolwide survey is conducted to garner parent feedback.  Parents are
invited to provide feedback throughout the year by contacting the Director
of Operations, Kelly Smith, ksmith@pspsdc.org.

Prep please contact the Director of Operations, Kelly Smith,
