• Illinois Association of Title I Directors 

    On behalf of the Illinois Association of Title I Directors, I welcome you to the Illinois Association of Title I Directors (IATD). IATD is an association composed of directors, coordinators, superintendents, assistant superintendents, principals and teachers who administer the Title I programming in their respective districts or schools. This is our 33rd year as an organization. Our goal is to provide an ongoing forum for networking and education on Title I processes.

    Our organization provides valuable networking opportunities for those involved in supervising and/or administering Title I programs in their districts or schools. Each year our organization hosts a joint annual statewide conference with the Illinois State Board of Education in the fall, provides a grants updates meeting at the State NCLB Conference in Chicago in February, and hosts an additional workshop in the spring. Our conference programming is tailored to meet the needs of association members and is developed through feedback and topics generated from our IATD membership. We also provide a statewide network of experienced Title I directors to provide consultation and digital collaboration and discussion opportunities.

    I encourage you to become a member of IATD and to experience the networking and educational benefits that will result from being a part of our organization and attending our conferences.


    Dr. Jan Rashid, President
    Illinois Association of Title I Directors
