Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) is the largest federal assistance program to our nation’s schools. This program, authorized by Congress, provides supplemental funds to school districts to assist schools with the highest student concentrations of poverty to meet school educational goals.
Title I funds are used to improve the education of children in high-poverty schools by supplementing services to improve the achievement at schools with a high percentage of economically disadvantaged students. Title I supports research based parental involvement activities and professional development for teachers based on the needs of students and teachers.
In compliance with federal law, (No Child Left Behind Act of 2011), you may request information regarding the professional qualification of your child’s teacher(s) and paraprofessional(s).
Services are provided for all students at Apalachicola Bay Charter School and Franklin County School (K-12). Title I initiatives are closely aligned with School Improvement plans at each Title I school.
Our goals are to;
- Ensure accountability
- Provide research based professional development for teachers
- Provide instructional materials that are aligned with State academic standards
- Measure academic achievement
- Close the achievement gap between high and low-performing students
- Provide meaningful opportunities for parents to participate in the education of their children
