Title I is the largest federal aid program for elementary schools, middle schools and high schools. Schools that are receiving Title I funding must have a Parent Advisory Council (PAC) that represents parents of participating Title I children. The Federal Title I program requires that parents participate in the development of the school’s Title I parent involvement policy, program, and budget. In addition, parents should participate in the development and evaluation of their schools’ Title I programs, including their budgets, and of their plans to support the needs of students with limited English proficiency and those with disabilities. In New York City, about 70% of schools are eligible for Title I funding.

SCHOOL LEADERSHIP TEAM
The School Leadership Team (SLT) provides a structure for school-based decision making and the development of a collaborative school culture. The SLT members develop educational policies for their school and align resources to those policies. SLTs provide ongoing evaluations and assessments of a school’s educational programs and their affect on student achievement. The SLT in each school is composed of an equal number of parents and staff and must meet at least once a month.
The monthly meeting of the P.S. 215 SLT is the third Tuesday of every month, September through June at 7:15 am.
