Parent Involvement

Parent Involvement

Parent involvement is crucial to improving student achievement.

University High School has two active parent advisory committees: the School Advisory Committee (SAC) and the English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC).

In addition, Parents retain three seats (25%) on University High School's School Site Council (SSC). The SSC, which is a decision-making council comprised of teachers, students, staff, and parents, meets once a month on Thursday afternoons at 3:30pm. Parents and other community members are welcome at these meetings as well.

What is Title I?

"Title I" generally refers to the federal compensatory education services and funding provided to students and schools under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (known now as "No Child Left Behind").

Title I Schools are schools that have a large proportion (generally over 40%) of students who qualify for free or reduced-price school meals.

Aside from receiving free or reduced-price meals, students who qualify for Title I services also qualify for a variety of other benefits:

  • Fee Waivers for SAT, SAT II (Subject), and ACT tests
  • Partial Fee Waivers for Advanced Placement (AP) Tests

Schools also receive additional funding based on the percentage of their student population who qualify for Title I Services. These funds are used to increase and facilitate parent involvement at the school, and upgrade the instructional program throughout the school.
