• Title I

    The school district receives federal funds that are used to provide programs and services to schools, students, and families in the Hatboro-Horsham community.

    Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA), is one of the most well-known parts of federal education law.

    Title I funds are targeted to schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families and used to provide educational services to students who are most at risk of failing to meet state academic standards. The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have a fair and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education.

    Benefits of Being a Title I School

    A benefit of being a Title I School is that the school receives additional funding to provide extra educational services for students. Funds are used to support effective, evidence-based educational strategies that close the achievement gap and enable the students to meet the state's challenging academic standards.

    How Hatboro-Horsham Uses Our Title I Funds

    Title I schools have a choice as to how they set up their Title I program, as long as the program helps its students meet state academic standards.

    District Parent Involvement Policy

    Hatboro-Horsham School District recognizes that a child’s education is a responsibility jointly shared by parents, teachers, administrators, and students. In order for a child to reach his/her full potential, our schools and parents must work together as equal partners and share the responsibility for improving student academic achievement.

    Family involvement is an ongoing process that assists parents in working with their children at home and makes them feel part of the school community. We recognize the importance of parents being the first educators their children will encounter. We will continue to promote two-way communication between home and school. Valuing the importance of the role of all parents, we will ask for their input as leaders and decision makers in our schools.
