The Title I Program Parent and Family Engagement Survey – 2018-2019
Dear Parent/Guardian and Family Member, Loyalsock Township School District’s Title I Program at Donald E. Schick Elementary is a Targeted Assistance program that directly supports eligible students in grades kindergarten through fifth. As the parent/guardian of a child attending a Title I school, you are an important part of the Title I team. Your input is vital in the planning and implementation of the parent and family engagement program and activities in our school. The focus of all Title I programs is to help eligible students meet the same high academic achievement standards expected of all children, regardless of their socioeconomic status and background.
The following survey is confidential and will be used to assist us with future planning for parent and family engagement activities and events at the school. We appreciate your feedback, and thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. Perhaps you have found us through your participation at the annual district Title I event or through a flyer sent home to all Title I students requesting feedback.
Title I is 100% federally funded and provides financial assistance to school districts to improve educational opportunities for students. Title I programs are designed to help children meet the state standards in reading and language arts.
Additional information on the district’s parent involvement policy, explanation of Title I programs, curriculum and assessment within the district can be found at http://www.ltsd.k12.pa.us/schools/donald-e-schick/e-our-school/title-1-literacy-services/.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO RAISE YOUR STAR?
Pennsylvania’s Early Learning Resource Centers (ELRCs) provide a single point-of-contact for families, early learning service providers, and communities to gain information and access services that support high-quality child care and early learning programs. ELRCs consolidate the current work of Child Care Information Service Agencies and the Regional Keys to create an enhanced resource and referral system for communities seeking early learning services and supports.
Whether you are a parent or guardian looking for child care or you are an early learning professional looking for professional development opportunity or technical assistance for your program, your ELRC can help you understand the quality of a child care/early learning program and help you help children in Pennsylvania grow! For a young child, everything is a learning experience. An early learning program, such as child care or Head Start, can affect how well children do in kindergarten, school, and in life.
Children who attend a quality child care / early learning program come to kindergarten ready to learn, do better in school, and are more likely to graduate high school, attend college, and get good jobs.
