Greetings Region VI Parents,

The Title I Stakeholder Input meeting is one of the most important meetings of the year! The focus of all Title I programs is to help eligible students meet the same high academic achievement standards expected of all children. We will discuss our goals, plan the budget, discuss the needs of parents, students, and staff, and provide ideas for next year's teacher training. This year's school compact, policy, and DCSD Policy are available for your review on your school's website. After reviewing the documents, we encourage you to attend your school's input meeting and provide your input. Remember, your input matters! Please provide your input using the link below
