Welcome to our Title I Virtual Parent Center!
This site offers parents and families support and resources they can use to assist and encourage their child. Research shows that involving families and communities in their local schools improves academic and social success of children. Therefore, the mission of the Virtual Parent Center is to impact the academic achievement of each student by creating a virtual environment that strengthens family and parental involvement and provides resources to families.

We hope you enjoy the site and gain information relevant to Title I in order to provide a clear understanding of the overall program.
Title I is the major component of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), passed in 1965 as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s War on Poverty. Congress has reauthorized the Act numerous times since its enactment, making changes in focus each time. The current reauthorization of ESEA is the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), signed into law by President Barack Obama on December 10, 2015. Title I fund flows from the U.S. Department of Education (as appropriated by Congress) to the Florida Department of Education (FDOE), which then allocates funds to Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS). Eligible schools spend the funds allocated based on formalized School Improvement Processes approved by M-DCPS and FDOE.
Title I is the part of ESSA that provides funding to schools with eligible students, supplemental funds to meet their educational goals.
Title I is the largest federally funded education program designed to provide students with additional help in Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.
