Title I

What is Title I?
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.

The parents, staff, and students of Woodbine Elementary School developed this School-Parent Compact for Achievement. Teachers suggested at-home learning strategies, parents added ideas to make them more specific, and students told us what would help them learn. Meetings are held each spring to review the compact and make changes based on student needs.

We welcome volunteers back to campus. Training is provided by the school counselor. Contact the school if you would like to volunteer!
