Colonial School District Title I Program

Title I Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (Title I), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. 

Federal funds are currently allocated through four statutory formulas that are based primarily on census poverty estimates and the cost of education in each state.

The Colonial School District offers Title I Schoolwide Programs at Conshohocken Elementary School and Plymouth Elementary School. These Title I funds support additional staff, resources for interventions, and Parent and Family Engagement Opportunities. For more information regarding each school’s Title I program, please click on the “About” tab on their building website. 

Parent and Family Engagement

Each Title I building works with their Title I Parent Representatives to develop their policy and compact, as well as develop opportunities to strengthen the home and school connection for families. Title I schools communicate their Building Title I Policy and Parent Compact in their Handbook, as well as have it posted on their building website under  the “About” tab. Parent and Family Engagement is an important element of a successful Title I Program, and parent feedback is valuable as Title I schools develop their program each year. Schools also hold an annual Parent Preschool Outreach to help families as they prepare their students for transition to Kindergarten. 

Additional district documents regarding Title I Parent and Family Engagement can be found here:

Non Public Schools

All Federal grants require a proportionate share of funds be set aside for services to a participating Non Public schools’ eligible students, teachers, and other educational personnel. 

Title I Non Public allocations are determined by the number of low income students residing in the LEAs Title I geographical boundary who attend a Non Public school. Colonial School District partners with the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit (MCIU) to provide services to Non Public schools. Each year, Colonial School District holds Meaningful Consultation meetings with each of its Non Public schools. Should a Non Public school have any questions regarding funds or their program, they should contact the District Federal Programs Coordinator.  Complaint Procedures are also available for Non Public schools.

Preschool Community Outreach

Each year, Colonial School District invites local preschools that feed into the Colonial School District to PreSchool Community Outreach.  If you are a new preschool, and would like to be included in this outreach, please contact the District Federal Programs Coordinator.
