The primary purpose of a school district is to educate every student and to prepare them for a variety of life choices upon graduation. This requires a school system to establish clear, valid and measurable standards for learning, which can be used to develop measurable objectives set into a workable framework for teachers. In Palestine ISD, these standards reflect the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, Career and College Readiness Standards, 21st Century skills and beliefs about what students should know and be able to do.
Palestine ISD is committed to the continuous improvement of the teaching and learning process. The district employs practices that facilitate the design, delivery and assessment of the curriculum. As a result, PISD will have an aligned, articulated and assessed curriculum that provides the foundation for all students to learn, succeed and compete.

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) is a United States federal statute originally enacted in 1965. These federal funds are authorized for supplemental professional development, instructional materials, resources to support educational programs, as well as parent and family engagement programs. The current reauthorization of ESEA is the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
Palestine ISD receives funding for the following entitlement programs within the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
Title I is a federally funded grant program, part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965. ESEA was reauthorized by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Title I, Part A provides supplemental funding for resources to help schools with high concentrations of students from low-income families provide a high-quality education that will enable all children to meet the state’s student performance standards. Title I, Part A supports schools in implementing either a schoolwide program or a targeted assistance program. These programs must use effective methods and instructional strategies that are grounded in scientifically based research.
The program is designed to accomplish four primary goals:
TEA Title I Part A Information
U.S. Department of Education Title I, Part A Information
Under ESEA rules, for a school to qualify as a Title I Schoolwide program, the campus must have a student population of at least 40% or more that are economically disadvantaged (i.e. students who qualify for free or reduced meals). Palestine ISD has applied for and received an Ed-Flex waiver to this rule, which allows the district to receive and distribute Title I funds based on economically disadvantaged student enrollment.
Palestine ISD currently has 6 schools that are served as Title I Schoolwide Campuses.
Each of these schools is given an allocation of Title I Part A funds through a specified formula. The school must spend those funds on strategies that will directly impact student instruction (such as academic interventions, instructional programs, supplemental teachers, etc.), professional development training for teachers, and Parent and Family Engagement activities.
All activities and/or resources paid with Title 1, Part A funds must be:
