Title One

Title I is a federally funded program authorized under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. As stated on the Massachusetts Department of Education website, Title I "provides financial assistance to districts and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards." Each year, school districts must evaluate each of their schools on the basis of poverty levels and use that data, following federal regulations, to select Title I Schools. The funds then are used in those schools to provide supplemental education services to students.  

The Title I program targets students who will benefit from supplemental classroom support and/or small group instruction either inside or outside of the classroom. Title I services are provided in cooperation with Title I and classroom teachers who meet the highly qualified requirements of No Child Left Behind. Your child’s progress in the Title I program will be monitored throughout the year and communicated to you by the Title I teachers. 

A key component of the Title I program is the home/school collaboration. Your involvement is desired and encouraged. You will be notified when we have our Title I Parent/Student events.  Your attendance at our workshops and events is highly valued. 

Monomoy Regional School District Report Card

February 2023

Every year, each public school and school district in Massachusetts receives a report card. The report card is designed to show families how our district is doing in different areas. A link to our report card is available at: https://reportcards.doe.mass.edu/2022/DistrictReportcard/07120000 

The report card represents a new way of looking at school performance, by providing information on student achievement, teacher qualifications, student learning opportunities, and more. 

Report cards are useful tools for everyone connected to our school. Families can use the information to have conversations with us about what the school is doing well and where there is room for improvement. Community and education leaders can use the information to better understand how to support students and our school.

You will notice on our report card that we continue to maintain graduation rates and college attending rates well above the state average. To improve student performance in our district, each school has analyzed their school specific data and built school improvement plans to address identified needs within their schools. We encourage you to become involved in helping us improve our district. We see parents as critical partners in the success of our students and school, and we are grateful for your continued support.

Finally, if your child attends a school that receives federal Title I funds (Harwich Elementary and Chatham Elementary), you also have the right to request the following information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers:

  •       Whether your child’s teacher is licensed in the grade levels and subject areas they teach,
  •       Whether your child’s teacher is teaching under an emergency license or waiver,
  •       The college degree and major of your child’s teacher, and
  •       Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

If you have questions about our district’s report card, would like to become involved in school improvement activities, or would like to request information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher, please contact Marc Smith, Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment (msmith@monomoy.edu).
