    About Title I Schools

    Title I is a federal program intended to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments. Title I targets resources to schools where the needs are greatest. High-poverty elementary schools (those with at least 48 percent or more students from low-income families) are eligible to adopt schoolwide programs to raise the achievement of low-achieving students by improving instruction throughout the entire school, thus using Title I funds to serve all children. The CCPS Title I Office has the responsibility of overseeing the schools’ Title I programs.

    There are ten Schoolwide Title I schools and one Targeted Assistance Title I school in Cecil County.

    Parent Community Involvement Policy (English)

    The Cecil County Public School System values families as partners in the educational process. Families are the first teachers of their children; therefore, it is vital that the family, school, and community work collaboratively to ensure academic and social/emotional success for all children. Opportunities for parents, guardians and family members to become involved in their child's educational experience will be offered at school, within the community and will be supported at the district level. The Cecil County Public School System is committed to include families in all aspects of the county's Title I program.
