Title I Federal Funding

Union Public Schools

Title I provides federal funding to schools to assist students who are low achieving or at most risk of falling behind. Title I is allocated to schools based on the percentage of student receiving free/reduced lunch. Schools with a percentage of at least 40 percent are eligible for a schoolwide program. Parent and family involvement is critical to student success.

Union Public Schools has nine schoolwide Title 1 Programs. They are Boevers, Roy Clark, Grove, Jarman, Jefferson, Ellen Ochoa, McAuliffe, and Rosa Parks elementary schools and the 6th/7th Grade Center.

District Title I Plan  / Title I Plans by School & Parent Notifications / Federal Programs /

Schools designated as Title I use federal funds to upgrade the entire educational program of the school. Title I funds are used to serve students in order to raise academic achievement as well as to provide additional assistance to all students who experience difficulties in meeting the State’s performance targets.

A Title I school must: have a free/reduced lunch count of at least 40 percent; collect and analyze data that effects student achievement;and  develop a comprehensive site plan and annually review the effectiveness of the plan. Each site must also have a Site Planning Team including parents to complete a needs assessment and prepare a summary of the data analysis to present to stakeholders. Current Proficiency Levels for state performance targets for reading and math are included.

Each designated Title I school prepares a comprehensive site plan and writes goals for the school year. Curriculum, Instructional Strategies and Assessments are aligned to these site goals.

For more information about Title programs, see Federal Level.

Title I Parent Notification Requirements

Each Title 1 site has a Parental Involvement Policy and School-Parent Compact explaining parental involvement opportunities and how to be involved in decisions at the school on various committees.

Each Site prepares a plan for informing parents about their child’s achievement on state assessments, as well as ongoing assessment information.

Each Site is required to notify parents if their child has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher that is not highly qualified.

Each Site is required to notify parents of their right to request information on the professional qualifications of the classroom teacher or paraprofessionals providing services to the child.

Last Day of School is May 22

Friday, May 22 will be the last day of school for the 2019-20 year. Additional time will be added to the school day for students in grades 6-8 beginning Monday, March 23, and continue through the end of the school year.

“Due to two days of school that were cancelled due to inclement weather, the district calendar had to be adjusted to meet the minimum state requirement of 1,080 hours of instruction,” Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler said. “We wanted to adjust the calendar so students don’t have to come back after Memorial Day.

Modifications to the school schedule will be made as follows:

  1. Add one day at the end of the year, with Friday, May 22, being the last day of school;
  2. Elementary schools:  No change to the schedule. They have enough school hours to meet the required 1,080 hours.
  3. 6th & 7th Grade Center:  4 minutes added to the end of the school day effective Monday, March 23 (the day after spring break). 
  4. 8th Grade Center:  2 minutes added to the end of each day after March 23.
  5. Union High School Freshman Academy:  No change to current times.
  6. Union High School:  Friday, April 10 will be a “virtual day,” with students working on assignments from home.
