Title I, Part A-Disadvantaged Children

Title I is a part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, which provides federal funds through the Georgia Department of Education to local educational agencies (LEAs) and public schools with high numbers or percentages of poor children to help ensure that all children meet challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards.

LEAs target the Title I funds they receive to public schools with the highest percentages of children from low-income families. These funds may be used for children from preschool aged to high school. Title I is designed to support State and local school reform efforts tied to challenging State academic standards in order to reinforce and enhance efforts to improve teaching and learning for students. Title I programs must be based on effective means of improving student achievement and include strategies to support parental involvement.

Typically, Title I funds offer smaller class sizes through additional teachers, tutoring services for struggling students, professional learning, additional instructional resources and supplies, as well as parent involvement materials. 

 We hold a School Title I meeting every fall at Crooked River Elementary, and additional meetings are held as needed throughout the school year. Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend and provide input and feedback.  Notice of the meetings is sent home with the students, advertised on our website, Facebook and Class DoJo.
