TITLE I

7 months ago

Title I is a partner in providing educational excellence for students who need extra help in order to be successful in school.

Chicopee Public Schools receives over 2 million dollars in federal funds for students who need assistance in reading and mathematics and the social support services that are necessary for social and school success.

In schools with high percentages of children from low-income families, school-wide Title I programs serve all children. In Chicopee the school-wide Title I elementary schools are BarryBelcher, Bowe, Lambert-Lavoie, Litwin, Selser, and Stefanik as well as Bellamy Middle School and Fairview Memorial Middle School.

The Title I program also offers opportunities for parents to get involved in their child’s education. Your involvement shows your child how important he or she is to you and how important an education is also. Please see the Parent Programs list for the parent programs that are available and the Parent Tips link for helpful suggestions for parents.

For more information about Title I or any of the programs offered, please speak to the principal of your child’s school or contact us at:
