• Title I at Maximo Elementary

     

    Title I benefits all of Maximo:

    A federally funded program that became effective in July 1995, Title I was formally known as Chapter One. Maximo is a school-wide Title I school. The funds received are supplemental to the district funds and are given in order to enhance the educational programs at the school and encourage parent involvement during the school year.

     

    The goals of Title I at Maximo:

    High student achievement is the #1 goal of Title I and at Maximo. Title I funds are used to hire additional staff and teaching partners, helping to ensure that all our students receive the extra assistance needed to reach his or her potential. The funds also are used to purchase instructional materials that will benefit students in the classroom.

     

    Title I encourages Parent Involvement: 

    When parents get involved, children succeed. Parent involvement increases student achievement. Therefore, home and school partnerships are essential. Parents are asked to sign a pledge for success. This pledge is an agreement between home and school in which parents, students, and teachers agree to work together so that all children succeed in school. Joining parent organizations (SAC and PTA), volunteering, and attending parent workshops and trainings are important and essential to student success.
