Title I-A, Education for the Disadvantaged
Title I-A is a federal program that provides supplementary academic services to those students who have the greatest need. Schools qualify for Title I-A services based on their free/reduced lunch percentages. In the Oregon City School District, six elementary schools (plus one private school - St. John the Apostle) qualify as Title I-A schools. The six OCSD schools (Beavercreek, Candy Lane, Gaffney Lane, Holcomb, Jennings Lodge and Redland) have school wide Title programs which allow the schools to support any student who is in academic need during the school year.
The majority of Title I-A funds are passed on to the Title I-A schools to support the hiring of paraprofessionals, and the purchase of materials and supplies. In addition, Title I-A funds are used to support supplementary activities such as: program administrative support, District Homeless Liaison, Community Involvement Coordinator, portions of the district's math and literacy teachers on special assignment, professional development, parent involvement activities, and more.

Title I Annual Parent Notification:
Six of our schools receive federal funds for Title I programs that are part of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.
One of the provisions of that act is the right of Title I parents to request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher. If you request this information, the district or school will provide you with the following as soon as possible:
a. if the teacher has met state licensing requirements for the grade level and subjects for which the teacher is providing instruction;
b. if state licensing requirements have been waived for the teacher on a temporary basis;
c. the type of college degree major of the teacher and the field of discipline for any graduate degree or certificate; and
d. if your child is receiving Title I services from paraprofessionals and, if so, his/her qualifications.
If you would like to request this information, please contact your child’s school.
Thank you for your interest and involvement in your child’s education.
