Legacy Early College is a Title I School. We receive extra support funding for academic initiatives/needs, as well as for technology, teacher professional development, and parenting programs. The current Title I Plan is always available in our offices and on our website for review. At least once a month throughout the year, parents can become involved with Title I Meetings, various programs, and other special activities that are guided with Title I initiatives and funding. All parents are welcome to all meetings and we encourage you to come be involved in planning every chance you have!
All parents, scholars, teachers, and administrators sign a Family/Scholar Expectations Commitment Agreement at the beginning of each school year. This agreement spells out the responsibilities for all to commit to in order to support our scholars in finding academic success.
Our schools are hard at work every day building a strong foundation that will allow for student success and provide the necessary ingredients to make our children college bound. We believe in keeping our partnership strong with our parents and community. We can't do it alone–success will require all of us! The best legacy you could leave is to make a difference and touch lives.

What is Title I?
Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) provides financial assistance to states and school districts to meet the needs of educationally at-risk students. The goal of Title I is to provide extra instructional services and activities which support students identified as failing or most at risk of failing the state’s challenging performance standards in mathematics, reading, and writing.
As parents, you can influence the success of your scholar in school more than any teacher or federal program. You can become an active participant in the Title I Scholar/Family Engagement Policy here at Legacy. You can serve as a role model, showing your child that you support his/her education. You can assure your child that you are aware of his/her progress at school and teach your child that you support the school and the school is supportive of you.
The Title I program will provide your child with extra educational assistance within and beyond the regular classroom. Title I can increase the quality of instruction by providing the staff at Legacy with many opportunities to improve professionally. Title I also gives parents meaningful opportunities to participate in the education of their children. Title I has a strong parent component. In our scholar handbook there is our Family/ Scholar Expectation Commitment Agreement as well as our Volunteer Policy.
