Title I Programs Support the Katy ISD Mission
Katy Independent School District, the leader in educational excellence, together with family and community, provides unparalleled learning experiences designed to prepare and inspire each student to live an honorable, fulfilling life...to create the future.
MPE is a School-wide Title I Campus
Title I, Part A is a federal program designed to help all students meet the state's challenging academic performance standards. School-wide Title I Programs provide supplemental funds that are used to improve the educational program of the entire school.
The Title I Program strives to ensure that every child is able to learn and perform at levels that meet or exceed the state academic standards.
The additional resources through these funds allow us to provide additional staff and enhanced instructional programs for all students.
The funds also support activities for our parents to be involved in their children's education.

Title I School/Parent Compact
Each school provides a Title I School/Parent Compact. The Compact is an agreement between the school, parent, and student to support each child to meet grade level expectations.
