Title 1

According to the U.S. Department of Education, Title 1 funding “ensures that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.” This is accomplished by ensuring high standards for all, increasing quality instructional time, improving instruction through professional development for staff, enhancing parent participation in the educational process, expanding educational resources,  and strengthening accountability.

Title I, Part A provides funds to schools and districts based upon the percentage of students qualifying to receive free or reduced-price school meals. The intent is to supplement school and district funds to provide students with opportunities and resources to obtain a high-quality education that boosts academic proficiency on challenging state and academic standards and assessments.

Sixty-six schools are operating Title I schoolwide programs, and one is operating Title I targeted assistance programs in Clayton County Public Schools for the 2023-2024 school year. A Schoolwide program permits schools to use resources to upgrade the entire educational program of the school and to raise achievement for all the students, and a targeted assistance program provides services to students based on multiple selection criteria.  Every Title I school has an on-site Parent Resource Center and a Title I Parent Involvement Contact or Liaison.
