What is the purpose of Title I?
The purpose of Title I, Part A of Public Law 107-110, is to provide supplemental funding 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.
Please feel free to review the 2019-2020 Title I schoolwide plan located in the Title I binder in the front office. Contact Mrs. Cheryl F. Swinton, Principal, with your questions or if you would like to provide input or feedback on the plan.
