Title I

  • Bradford Elementary is a Title I school

    Why is Bradford a Title I School?

    Based on our population of families who qualify for free and reduced lunch, Bradford receives approximately $383K in Title I Federal Funding to support students. 

    How do Title I funds support Bradford scholars?

    Bradford uses Title I funds to purchase academic materials, technology devices, and additional staff such as interventionists, educational assistants, and classroom teachers to provide smaller class sizes and small group support for reading, writing, and math instruction.

    When Parents are involved, research shows:

    • Students achieve more regardless of socio-economic status, ethnicity, or parents' educational level.
    • The more extensive the parent involvement, the higher the student achievement.
    • Students exhibit more positive attitudes and behavior.
    • Students have higher graduation rates and enrollment in post-secondary education.

    How can parents become involved?

    Parents can join our School Accountability and Family Engagement Committees that meet each quarter. These committees provide input for our Title I Compact, family engagement activities, and other school decisions.


    Who should I contact to join the School Accountability Committee or Family Engagement Committee?

    Please contact Principal Padilla, or the Dean of Students, Ms. Masciotra, if you are interested in joining these committees.
