Title 1

Welcome to Baden Academy’s Title I page
Here’s where you can find answers, resources, and information about this essential educational program. Title I, a part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, provides financial assistance to qualified schools and educational agencies to help ensure all children meet state academic standards. Baden Academy is grateful to receive these federal funds each year, and our schoolwide plan includes using the money for initiatives like professional development for our teachers, parent-family engagement activities throughout the school year, salaries for teaching assistants, reading and math materials, supplies for our school-wide arts programs, and technology for our classrooms.  
Our school is required to update information about our Title I program each school year, have our plans approved by our school board, and make information available to our school community. Please read through the descriptions below and click on the links to view the current documents.  
Annual Parent Survey
We send out a survey each spring to help our team decide the best ways to spend our funds for the following year. Your opinion and input matter so much to us! This survey will be sent directly to our families at the appropriate time each year, and we encourage your thoughtful response.  
Parent-Family Engagement Policy
This policy explains the working relationship between the school family and the home family. It is very important for you to feel welcome and involved in your child’s education, so please read through it to understand our team approach.
Assessments and Standards
This document lists the assessments tools we use to help us track your child’s process throughout the school year so we can understand how to support their learning needs. We use the results of these tests to determine the best course of action for our students and to see how we can use the federal Title I funds most effectively.
Title I Compact
This is a document to be signed by a student, a parent/guardian, and a member of our school to lay out each person’s role and responsibilities for a successful outcome. This is a voluntary document but serves as an excellent basis for discussion.
Right-to-Know Letter
This letter lets you know about your right to request information about the qualifications of the staff members who work with your child.
