Title 1


Title I - Part A

It's the largest federal assistance program for our nation's schools.  

 The goal of Title I is a high-quality education for EVERY child.    

How Title I works:  

The federal government provides funding to states each year for Title I.  To get the funds each state must submit a plan describing:

  • What all children are expected to know and be able to do;

  • The high-quality standards of performance that all children are expected to meet;

  • Ways to measure progress.

State Educational Agencies (SEA's) send money to school districts based on the numbers of low-income families.

The Local School District (called the Local Educational Agency, or LEA) identifies eligible schools and provides Title I resources.

The Title I School (this includes parents, teachers, administrators and other school staff) works to:

  • Set goals for improvement;
  • Measures student progress using standards set forth in the state's Title I Plan;
  • Develop programs that add to regular classroom instruction;
  • Involve parents in all aspects of the program.

Title I Serves Children through:

Schoolwide Programs - schools with 40% or more of children from low-income families can develop schoolwide Title I programs to serve ALL students.  Schoolwide programs can combine Title I funds with federal, state and local funds to improve school programs.

Grady County Title I schools (Eastside, Northside, Southside, and Washington)are schoolwide programs. 

Parent Involvement is the cornerstone of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)! Get involved. Know your child's teachers and be active in your child's school.  Together we can make a difference!
