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.
