What is the Purpose of Title 1 Funding?
According to the U.S. Department of Education the purpose of Title 1 funding, “is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach, at minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.”
The basic principles of Title 1 state that schools with large concentrations of low-income students will receive supplemental funds to assist in meeting student’s educational goals. Low-income students are determined by the number of students enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program. For an entire school to qualify for Title 1 funds, at least 40% of students must enroll in the free and reduced lunch program.

CSR Newsletter Statement
“Due to the state Class Size Reduction law, students may need to be moved between teachers after the start of school to ensure compliance with the required student limits. These limits are 18 students for Pre-Kindergarten to grade 3, 22 students for grades 4 to 8, and 25 students for grades 9 to 12 in core classes. Please know that students’ needs will continue to be met through proper instruction and services. Additional information on core classes or anything else related to Class Size Reduction is available on the Class Size Reduction website at http://www.broward.k12.fl.us/classsize/.”
Possibility of Class Leveling If Necessary:As school opens for the 2013-2014 school year, our enrollment has been fluctuating due to last minute enrollments and withdrawals. While some grade levels have shown increases in students others have had decreases and withdrawals. Many changes keep occurring, so we do not have a stable enrollment at this time. Unfortunately, new registrations do not always come in at the same grade levels as the withdrawals and therefore, some of our class sizes may be too large and others may be too small. We cannot be sure of actual class sizes until after the first two to three weeks of school. We must meet class size requirements as best as possible and provide a quality education for all students. Therefore, if class changes significantly at any grade level, then we will need to do some balancing. If this becomes necessary, it would effect student/teacher assignments. I assure you all of the teachers and staff at Panther Run are excellent and our students will do well with any one of them. Placements are made with careful review of academic needs and educational goals. If it is necessary to make such a change, all staff impacted will be consulted and great care and thought will be given to the placement of each child in any new class. The teachers involved will meet and discuss each child and his/her academic needs. We are all confident any children impacted by a necessary change would have a consistent, smooth transition. Should it become necessary to balance classes, your understanding and support of these decisions will be greatly appreciated.
School Advisory Council
School Improvement is an absolute priority for all Broward schools. To make it happen, every school has a school Advisory Council which studies the school's track record and comes up with an annual plan to improve education in vital areas such as: student achievement, curriculum, safety and discipline. These plans are on file at every school. Call us if you would like to be a part of this great team.
What is the SAC Committee?
The School Advisory Council (SAC) is a team of people representing various segments of the community–parents, teachers, students, administrators, support staff, business/ industry people and other interested community members.
What do they do?
SAC member gather to discuss the school’s academic plan and progress. They discuss the School Improvement Plan - a plan made of goals and objectives established for the school determined by needs. The purpose of the School Improvement Plan is to increase student performance. The SAC committee assists the school principal with budget and recommendation on how school monies are spent or allocated.
How can parents get involved and participate in the SAC committee?
Parents are encouraged to attend the monthly meeting of the SAC committee at their child’s school.
Why is it important for parents to be active participants?
* The SAC committee provides a place where parents can voice their opinions and suggestions. They have an active role in making decisions that will best serve the students.
* SAC also gives the opportunity for parents to actively participate in setting goals and making plans to achieve those academic goals.
* SAC allows for parents to identify issues that need to be addressed concerning the school climate.
