San Saba ISD is beginning to plan its Title I program for the next school year and needs your help to determine if there are any students who live in San Saba Independent School District and attending your private nonprofit school who may be eligible for Title I services. Title I, Part A, authorized under the Every Student Succeeds Act, provides services to children who need extra educational help and reside in Title I public school attendance areas. Services can range from reading instruction several times per week during the school day, to mathematics instruction after school, to counseling services, to a family literacy program during the summer. In addition to student services, Title I provides professional development activities for private school teachers of participating children and special activities for families of Title I students.
Under the Title I program, the number of private school students who qualify for free and reduced-price lunch (they do not need to be participants) and reside in a Title I public school attendance area provide the basis for calculating the amount of funds used to implement the program. Students who need extra educational help and reside in a Title I public school attendance area are eligible for services.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss the Title I program, please call me at 325- 372-3771. Sincerely, Wayne Kelly
