Academir Charter School Preparatory Title I
Virtual Parent Center

Welcome to our Title I Virtual Parent Center! This site offers parents and families
support and resources they can use to assist and encourage their child. Research shows
that involving families and communities in their local schools improves academic and
social success of children. Therefore, the mission of the Virtual Parent Center is to impact
the academic achievement of each student by creating a virtual environment that
strengthens family and parental involvement and provides resources to families.

We hope you enjoy the site and gain information relevant to Title I in order to provide a
clear understanding of the overall program.

Title I is the major component of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA),
passed in 1965 as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson's War on Poverty. Congress has
reauthorized the act numerous times since its enactment, making changes in focus each
time. The current reauthorization of ESEA is the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA),
signed into law by President Barack Obama on December 10, 2015. Title I fund is sourced
from the U.S. Department of Education (as appropriated by Congress) to the Florida
Department of Education (FDOE), which then allocates funds to Miami-Dade County
Public Schools (M-DCPS). Eligible schools spend the funds allocated based on formalized
School Improvement Processes approved by M-DCPS and FDOE.

Title I is the part of ESSA that provides funding to schools with eligible students,
supplemental funds to meet their educational goals.

Title I is the largest federally funded education program designed to provide students with
additional help in Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.
