(October - November)
The OFP will schedule several required compliance meetings throughout the year. These meetings will also include information on Curriculum, Evaluation, and Parenting.

The financial status of some of your students' families may have changed since the beginning of the year. (Title I funds are based on Free/Reduced lunch rate.)
•§ Attend as many school level meetings as possible.
•§ Secure sign-in sheets, agendas, and minutes. Listen closely to your (principal-if you are the site coordinator), teachers, and parents and take notes of their vision for school improvement so that these may be discussed during school planning for next year.
•§ Review the Title I plan to ensure that all activities are initiated and order as many instructional/technology supplies as possible. All student supplies (objects 410 & 445) should be ordered by December or the end of the second 9 weeks,
•§ The activities and items in your plan were written because of a need, therefore act on those needs early so that they can impact students and activity evaluations. This will be monitored by the OFP.
• Hold a community AYP meeting should your school have to offer Supplemental Services or Choice. This required meeting could take place in conjunction with another meeting and must be documented. This is the SES Fair,
• An audited attestation will be completed and signed by the principal to be on file in the OFP. Contact Joyce Gerald for advice and options for presenting your data. Retain invitation, handouts, minutes, and the sign-in sheet for documentation.
Required personnel attestations will be sent to principals. The Attestation will attest:
•§ that all personnel at the school are highly and fully qualified;

•§ that each paraprofessional works under the direct supervision of a highly qualified teacher.
•§ Pro-rated staff will be given a time and duty roster to complete daily and submit twice a year to document that their pro-rated fte matches their job description.
Educate your staff in how to work with parents as equal partners. Specifically, with the value and the contributions of parents, and how to reach out to, communicate with, and work with parents, implement and coordinate parent programs, and build ties between parents and the school. This can be accomplished during a faculty meeting or grade level meeting (PowerPoint, brochure, handout). Maintain a copy of the agenda, sign-in sheet, along with the minutes for documentation.
Develop and implement staff and parent surveys.
Review activity evaluations for survey questions that may be necessary to include. Consider adding questions to survey staff and parents about any desired activities for next year's plan that were not included in the current plan.
Review the research listed in your Title I application and ensures that you can access a copy.
