Purpose: To establish the board's vision for receiving and handling public complaints.
Complaints shall be referred to the superintendent for investigation, appropriate action or recommendations. Any board member who considers a complaint not resolved satisfactorily shall register the complaint in writing with the chairman of the board, setting forth the facts on which the complaint is based and seek agreement of four board members to place the matter on the board’s agenda for disposition by the board.
Complaints about books or instructional materials being used in the school system shall be processed through the process of board policy IJKAA and its accompanying administrative regulations. Challenged materials shall remain in the school pending final action upon the complaint, and a school may observe the request of a parent/legal guardian that his/her own child not be assigned a specific book.
The superintendent shall inform the board of all complaints about instructional materials.
The purpose of Title I, Part A of Public Law 107-110, is to enable schools to provide opportunities for children served to acquire the knowledge and skills contained in the challenging state content standards and to meet the challenging state performance standards developed for all children.
This purpose is accomplished by such efforts as
providing an enriched and accelerated educational program;
promoting schoolwide reform through schoolwide programs or through additional services that increase the amount and quality of instructional time;
significantly upgrading the quality of instruction by providing staff in participating schools with substantial opportunities for professional development; and
affording parents meaningful opportunities to participate in the education of their children at home and at school.
For more information on Title I programs visit the South Carolina Department of Education’s website at www.ed.sc.gov or the United States Department of Education’s website www.ed.gov.
Please feel free to review the 2019-2020 Title I schoolwide plan located in the Title I binder in the front office.
