ESEA Outreach and Workshops
The Nevada State PIRC helps parents to understand their options under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) previously known as No Child Left Behind. Specifically, parents at Title I served schools may have the option of Supplemental Educational Services (free tutoring) and/or School Choice. The Nevada PIRC also provides resources to help parents understand Adequate Yearly Progress and school improvement.
Annual Title I Meeting Toolkit for Schools
All Title I schools are required to host an annual meeting with families to share information about the different components of Title I. This toolkit contains everything you need to host this meeting: a flyer, Power Point presentation, a tip sheet on adult learning, a script for an interactive session with families and an evaluation. This toolkit was developed in partnership with the Alabama State PIRC, Arizona State PIRC and the Wyoming State PIRC.
