Annual Title I Meeting title i

Title 1 is one of the nation’s largest federal programs through which school districts receive federal funding to provide supplemental instruction for students based upon academic need.  The goal is to increase performance and academic achievement in the areas of language arts and/or mathematics. Schools are identified as Title 1 based on the economic level of the families who attend.  The number of students receiving free and reduced lunch qualify a school to receive Title 1 funding.

PowerSchool Parent Access Portal important message

We are excited to let you know that we are now able to provide you with access to your students current grades through PowerSchool's Parent Access Portal. Today, all students will be bringing home an informational sheet that contains login directions, a unique access ID and a password. You will need all of this information to create an account and login. Please make sure to follow the directions on this sheet carefully as you set this process up for your student.

We highly encourage you to follow through with this process for your student. This will give you access to your students grades on a daily basis. We encourage you to check this often and have conversations with your student about their academic progress.

Alabama Literacy Act Information Literacy Act

All Memorial Park Elementary students will be bringing home the information letter attached regarding the Alabama Literacy Act. This act looks at the reading progress of each elementary student to ensure students are reading on grade level before exiting the 3rd grade. Along with this letter, all MPS students have received beginning of the year reading data from sources such as the STAR reading assessment and DIBELS. These scores have been sent home with students and will continue to be sent home when updated throughout the school year. Please take time to make yourself familiar with the Alabama Literacy Act. Below are a few links to help familiarize yourself with this act and also to help with resources as you support your students reading at home.

Parents often ask our teachers and administrators what they can do at home to help their student become a better reader. The link below has great grade level resources to help parents support their students reading progress at home. Please take a look at this link and the resources it provides as you work with your student at home.
