Title I Family Engagement & Programs

Title I elementary schools include Oakland Beach, Lippitt, Norwood, Hoxsie, and Scott.

Our goal is to improve student achievement. One important way that is done is to prepare, encourage, and support parents within their school community. We recognize that authentic and meaningful parental involvement is the key to educational success.

Need Support? We've got you.

"I have made it one of my main focuses to reach out to local agencies like Westbay Community Action, The Rhode Island Community Food Bank, The Parent Support Network of RI, RIPIN, and more, and get to know their employees. Because when someone comes to me and asks for support, I not only know where they can go, I know who they can talk to. I can follow through and ensure struggles become successes." - Mrs. Kadek
