In 2009-2010, the Department of Public Instruction developed a new statewide Title I Network with the CESAs. This Title I Network will provide increased technical assistance and professional development for districts. It will assist in implementing effective Title I programs in addition to providing districts additional Title I support to further raise student achievement.
All districts will be provided a base level of services in five areas:
Title I Implementation
Consultation with Title I Coordinators regarding Title I law, programming, reporting requirements and monitoring.
Title I Coordinator Leadership
Information and resources for Title I Coordinators through one-on-one technical assistance, at least two regional meetings and a Title I Coordinator orientation.
Districts and Schools Identified for Improvement
Assistance to Title I districts and schools indentified for improvement including identifying and implementing improvement strategies and sanctions as required under federal Title I law.
Title I Related Professional Development
Access to multiple professional development opportunities based on regional Title I needs that have been identified by districts in each CESA.
Resources and Collaboration
Information and resources regarding other initiatives and agencies that can provided Title I related support.
