Ms. Albier gave background on how the decision was made by the superintendent and the Title I Task
Force to increase the threshold for Title I funding to 50% from 36%. The main reason was to concentrate
the money being received to the most needy schools (i.e. highest poverty schools). Ms. Albier reported
that the district was “diluting” State and Federal funding instead of concentrating the funding to the highest
poverty schools. Ms. Albier added that even without making changes to the allocation formula, the district
was already planning to cut the projected funding for Title I (6 percent decrease ) and for EIA (10 percent

Parent Involvement: Building School Capacity (Manuel Guillot, Office of Parent & Community
Engagement): Asked the DAC membership how the Site Council is being utilized in the school-site to
improve the achievement of students in the school-site. He encouraged parent engagement in the school-

after year.” Discussion commenced on parent engagement definition as understood by the DAC
membership. One member defined parent engagement as a parent becoming part of the school-site (i.e. to
