Important Survey for Title 1 Parents

Lakewood City Schools participates in the Title I Schoolwide program. The guidelines of this program currently fall under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The goal of our schoolwide program is to support the instruction for all students, with a primary focus on the needs of children who are not successful in meeting state standards in Reading and Math. Each spring we ask parents to comment on their experiences with our program. Each year, we review these suggestions and those of our staff as we evaluate the program and plan for the next school year. Please complete the survey by Monday, May 29.
