The Purpose of a Title I Plan lays out the educational objectives for the district. These objectives, in turn serve as goals for the use of funds in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The Illinois State Board of Education must first approve the grant, which aims to address any disparities that result in low-income and/or minority students/schools. After approval, the district must then monitor disbursement of funding, monitoring of services, and keep documentation supporting the efforts of each building.
Zion ESD 6 will be establishing a new 5 year Strategic Plan for the 2024-2025 school year which is the foundation of every program, professional development, materials requisition, family-community event, etc. Our diligent efforts in housing artifacts to reflect Title I funding/services at each school, and as a district, is required.
