Title 1 Information:

PA Parent Information Resource Center

The goal of the PA PIRC is “to expand and initiate opportunities for parents to be involved in their children’s education and to design outreach strategies that facilitate local educational initiatives.” Each month parents are provided with the opportunity to learn about a variety of events, conferences, and workshops in Pennsylvania and around the nation so that they can keep informed about the latest happenings in the field of parent involvement.

At their website you will find a flyer provided by the PA PIRC that outlines the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act, as well as the responsibilities of schools and parents under the legislation.

Parent Resource Centers at Ebenezer and Union Canal Elementary Schools

Both Ebenezer and Union Canal elementary schools have Parent Resource Centers that are available during regular school hours that include resources for students and parents. Please make arrangements through your child’s Title 1 teachers or the school principal.
