Hunsinger School is a Title l school. Title l is a federally funded program designed to address the academic needs of students and to assist them in meeting the state's high standards, particularly in the areas of reading, writing, science, and mathematics. The Pinellas County School District receives funds based upon the number of students who are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch.
You may see this in your Title l School:
*Intervention classes - provides intensive assistance in reading and math
*Additional resource teachers and assistants who are highly qualified
*A variety of teaching methods and materials
*Special learning events
*Training for families
One requirement of a Title l school is the Parent/Teacher/Student compact. This is an agreement which identifies the individual responsibilities of parents, teachers, and students. Each middle and high school student will receive a compact to review with his or her parent, the compact should be signed and returned to school. Parents of elementary students are required to meet with their child's teacher to discuss and sign the compact.
A Parent Involvement Plan is developed every year by each Title l School. Parents are asked to provide input on this plan, parent involvement is crucial for its development. Our 2014-2015 Parent Involvement Plan has been approved and parents may view it below or at the Title l Parent Involvement station in the school's front office.
Our School Advisory Council meets the second Monday of every month at 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Our School Advisory Council is composed of parents, teachers, support staff, administrators, and community members. The School Advisory Council along with parent input determines how Title l funds will be utilized.
