Title I

 

Welcome to Title I of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  Title I is a federal program that offers supplemental funds to school districts to ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education.

Title I serves our four elementary schools (Douglas, Johnston, WE Parker and Merriwether) and JET Middle School.  Each of these schools operates a school-wide Title I program.  School-wide programs provide greater decision-making authority and flexibility to schools and teachers in exchange for greater responsibility for student performance.

Title I funds are allocated to schools based on a per poverty student enrollment allocation.  Poverty for Title I purposes is based on the 135 average daily membership and the March free/reduced lunch report.

Once a school receives an allocation, funds are utilized based on the needs of that school.  In Edgefield County, Title I generally provides class-size reduction teachers, computer lab managers,computer-assisted instruction, Response to Intervention personnel, parent involvement activities,and more.

For further information, please contact Dr.  Cherya Clark, Title I Office, (803) 275-4601 or email caclark@edgefield.k12.sc.us.
