Title I offers support for the Omaha Public Schools by providing additional staff, additional curriculum resources, School Improvement Planning, staff training opportunities, smaller class sizes, and enhanced parent and family engagement to schools with the highest need. The Every Student Succeeds Act of 2016 (ESSA) and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), provide a framework for schools, families, and communities to work together to improve teaching and learning. Omaha Public Schools Title I supports 77 schools, provides targeted assistance to 30 private schools and serves 22 social services agencies.
Each Title I school will develop a school-parent compact. This compact outlines how parents, school staff, and students share the responsibility for improving student outcomes and how they will build and develop a partnership to achieve those outcomes. The compact is discussed at parent-teacher conferences as it relates to individual student success. View a sample School-Parent Compact.
The best way to be an involved family is by partnering with your child's school. Review the District's Title I Parent and Family Engagement Policy.
