Title I Parent Sub-committee (TIPS)
The Title I Parent Sub-committee comprises parents of participating students, school staff, and district staff. The ultimate goal is to provide members with training, allowing them to advise and provide recommendations to the SSC regarding the Parent and Family Engagement Policy, School-Parent Compact, and appropriate supplemental programs in the School Plan for Student Achievement. Additionally, this sub-committee is very important to developing District plan requirements through documents like the LCAP Federal Addendum.
Last updated August 2023
District Advisory Committee members from a Title I school site are automatically included as Title I Parent Sub-committee members. Members are expected to discuss Title I-related activities held on their site and participate in the District Title I Parent and Family Engagement Policy development.
