What is Title I?

Dalton High School is identified as a Title I school as part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Title I is designed to support state and local school reform efforts tied to the challenging state academic standards to improve teaching and learning for students. Title I programs must be based on effective means of improving student achievement and include strategies to support family engagement. All Title 1 Schools must jointly develop with parents and family members a written parent and family engagement policy.

Parent Survey

Thank you for your response to our Parent Survey in mid-SeptemberYour input is valuable to us, and we want to inform you about the feedback we receivedAccording to the survey, approximately 75% of our parents feel like they are well informed about both school activities and their child’s academic progress, but would like more time in advance to the scheduled activitiesHowever, only about half of our parents believe they have been given the opportunity to provide input into school decisions, so this is an area where we can improve and will look for ways to do soWe continue to welcome your feedback and ideas. 


Other questions on the survey gave insight into what you would like to see made available for family engagement in the futureFor instance, according to the question about informational programs you would be interested in the school providing to parents, the two greatest areas of interest are in parenting strategies and technology issues, together making up over half of the total responsesAdditionally, the most common response to how we should use parent engagement funds was some type of family game or activity night, demonstrating the culture we value as a community that focuses on family and belongingAs we look to plan more parent engagement opportunities in the coming months, these are areas we will explore.   


Again, we appreciate your participation in our survey and in our school.  We look forward to more opportunities to meet your needs and receive input from you as we work together for the future of our children.
