Chapter One of this parent handbook was designed to introduce Title I, answer questions about the law and its intent, and describe the importance of parental participation in school activities. Chapter Two provides a basic understanding of how parents and teachers can work cooperatively to enhance children's education and underscores the importance of good communication between the home and school. Chapter Three describes the mechanics of Title I: implementation, funding, needs assessment, target selection, project design, monitoring, evaluation, and dissemination. Chapter Four defines and describes the Title I Parent Advisory Council (PAC) component and examines the structure and operation of such councils. The handbook is appended by a list of educational service districts in Washington State, a glossary of terms related to Title I, and examples of ideas and materials for Parent Advisory Councils prepared by school districts in Washington.
