The New Haven Public Schools invites parents to attend its annual Title I District-Wide Parent Advisory Council meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 19 at Lincoln-Bassett School.
 
 
 
Title I is a federal program that provides disadvantaged students with tutoring and supplemental services in math, reading and sometimes other subjects. The program also offers parenting and life skill workshops for parents, as well as assistance in navigating the public school bureaucracy.
 
 
 
Parents are urged to attend the meeting to learn about the program and the many benefits that parents and students are entitled to. The district will run a raffle as well as provide fun and games for kids.
 
 
 
“I urge parents to attend the Title I organizational meeting,” Title I Parent Liaison Parris Lee said. “They will learn about academic support for their children and other services. This program can improve their child’s grades, better preparing them for high school and beyond.”
