Parkway also serves as the fiscal agent for the distribution of funds to nonpublic schools that qualify within the Parkway School District, or who serve students who live within the boundaries of the Parkway School District. For specific information on all of the Title programs visit the DESE Federal Legislation and Guidance webpage.


    Title I.A

    Title I.A is meant to provide all students opportunities to recieve a fair, equitable, and high-quality education to close achievement gaps based on economic deprivation as measured by those families eligible for free and reduced lunch programs. Parkway School District implements a schoolwide system of support that upgrades the entire educational program of a school in order for all students to reach high educational standards. Carman Trails Elementary and Ross Elementary currently qualify for Title I.A funding. 

    Schoolwide Plans

    • A schoolwide program is a comprehensive reform strategy designed to ensure that all students, particularly those who are low-achieving, demonstrate proficient and advanced levels of achievement on State academic achievement standards.  
    • A schoolwide program uses its Title I.A allocations to upgrade the entire educational program of the school in order to raise academic achievement for ALL students at the school. No longer are students or teachers labeled “Title I,” but instead all students and all teachers at the school use Title 1.A funds to improve the school’s entire academic program.  
    • An important goal set by the Parkway School District is to ensure that all students achieve academic success. Your encouragement and support play a vital role in the progress of your child.
