When a school is designated to receive Title 1 support, federal funds will be allocated to supplement district funding. The federal funds are specifically intended to provide additional academic and family engagement activities.
Parent Involvement is welcome and encouraged in Lincoln Public Schools and a required component of programming for Title 1 schools. The links below will provide you with information about the Lincoln Public Schools Parent Involvement Policy and a letter to parents from Dr. Linda Hix with specific parent notifications for parents with students attending a Title 1 school.

Lincoln Public Schools – Schoolwide Title I Programs:
A schoolwide program is a comprehensive reform strategy designed to upgrade the entire educational program in a Title I school; its primary goal is to ensure that all students, particularly those who are low-achieving, demonstrate proficient and advanced levels of achievement on State academic achievement standards.
Parents of students attending any school in a district receiving Title 1 funds may request, and the district will provide to the parents in a timely manner, information regarding the professional qualifications of the of the student’s teacher(s) and paraprofessional(s).
