Title I Part A is a part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). This act provides federal funds through the Georgia Department of Education to local educational agencies 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. In Oconee County Title I serves students through Targeted Assistance Programs which help ensure that eligible children receive assistance to meet performance standards.Title I funds are often used to provide students additional segments of reading and/or math instruction by a certified, highly qualified teacher and/or paraprofessional, and support materials in reading and/or math. Funds are also used to promote parental involvement through an active parent involvement program at the school and system level.
School Parent and Family Engagement Plan:
Each year, Title l Schools must develop a written policy describing how the school will support the important role of parents in their child’s learning. With parental input, OCES developed the Parent and Family Engagement Plan. The School Parent and Family Engagement Plan provides information regarding parental and family involvement, parent/family/teacher notification and communication, student achievement, and budget.Targeted Assistance School Plan:
The Targeted Assistance School Plan will outline and explain elements of the program such as: instructional strategies and programs, selection criteria, provisions for instruction, and procedures for assessment.School-Parent Compact:
The School-Parent Compact will outline how parents, staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement. The compact describes how school and parents will build and develop a partnership that will help a child achieve the State’s high standards.Title l Newsletter:
To further support parents and their critical role in their child’s learning, an electronic copy will be sent home each month. That month's newsletter will be found on the Title I page of the CFES website, and if you would like a hard copy, please let me know and I will send one home in your child's Friday Folder.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact Melissa Shaner at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 706-769-7764.
