Title I, Part A is a federally funded, supplemental program designed to support students who are failing or at-risk of failing to meet state standards. This is accomplished by ensuring high standards for all: increasing quality instructional time; improving instruction through professional development for staff; enhancing parent participation in the educational process; expanding educational resources; and strengthening accountability.
Title I, Part A provides funds to schools and districts based upon the percentage of students qualifying to receive free or reduced price school meals. The intent is to help all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state and academic standards and assessments.
There are 62 schools operating Title I schoolwide programs in Clayton County Public Schools for the 2016-2017 school year. A Schoolwide program permits schools to use resources to upgrade the entire educational program of the school and to raise achievement for all the students. Every Title I school has an on-site Parent Resource Center and a Title I Parent Involvement Contact or Liaison.
