TITLE I School-Wide Program
The Sullivan County Department of Education is fortunate to have a school-wide Title I program in several of the schools. The goal of the Title I program is a high-quality education for every child. Title I is the largest federal aid program for our nation’s schools and it funds additional resources in an effort to provide every student with the opportunity to meet the challenging academic standards needed to be successful in school. The flexible funding may be designated for additional instructional staff, professional development, extended-time programs, and other strategies for raising student achievement and ensuring students’ access to scientifically-based instructional strategies and challenging academic content.
Families and school staff are equal partners in decisions that affect children and families in the educational process. The partnership of parents, educators, and students assures that each child has access to learning opportunities which support their success in school. Therefore, your input is greatly valued and encouraged in the process of creating policies, practices, and programs.
You are encouraged to support your child’s education and communicate with your child’s teacher(s) on a regular basis. Through a strong partnership, we can provide every child with an optimal educational experience.
If you have any questions and/or comments concerning the Title I school wide program in your school, please contact the principal or the Title I school social workers.
