Title I & Family Involvement

Title I OVERVIEW Components of Title I are:
  • Effective Instruction
  • Professional Development
  • Parental Involvement
Studies show that the more parents are involved in the education of their child, the more academically successful that child will be.  The goal of the Title I Parent Involvement program is to give school-based Parent Involvement Facilitators information, materials and resources to enable them to provide for their parents at the school-level.  It is the job of the Facilitator to give parents the tools and resources necessary for them to help their child at home.  Everyone working together in this way gives the child the best possible support for doing well in school.
The staff at Ben Hill Griffin Jr. Elementary welcomes comments and suggestions for improving our Title 1 Family workshops that we provide each year. We also review our Title 1 Compacts and Parent Involvement Summaries to best serve the needs of our students. If you would like to help revise our documents or provide suggestions, please contact our Title 1 Facilitator Lori Loveless at lori.loveless@polk-fl.net or call the school office at 635-7820.
