    Title I mandates that local educational agencies (LEAs) conduct an annual evaluation of the content and effectiveness of their family engagement policy. The SAPR Department surveys parents at all Title I schools and reports on the quality of family engagement each school year. The results are presented annually to Title I leadership, which, in turn, delivers the results to the schools.

    • Title I Programs in Private Schools

    The SAPR Department submits a yearly report on the results of reading assistance offered to private school students who qualify for Title I, live within Title I school boundaries, and are prioritized (based on spring reading assessments) or referred by their private school teacher and found to qualify (based on individually administered reading assessments).
