WHAT IS TITLE I?Title I is a federal funded program resulting from the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Title I provides funds to schools and districts based upon the percentage of students qualifying to receive free or reduced price (school) meals. The purpose is to ensure that all children have access to quality instruction and resources that will enable them to meet state academic standards.
There are 55 schools operating Title I Programs in Gwinnett County Public Schools. Of these, 37 are elementary schools, 10 are middle schools, and eight are high schools. Each Title I Schoolwide Program has an on-site Parent Center, facilitated by a certified teacher, known as the Parent Instructional Support Coordinator (PISC). Many schools also have a Parent Outreach Liaison, who is bilingual (English-Spanish).
Each Title I School is required to host workshops/training for parents that focus upon the academic needs of the students. While many of these workshops/training occur during daytime hours, others are held in the evenings. Additionally, these workshops/training are repeated, based upon attendance and parent requests. Interpreters (for Spanish speaking parents) and childcare are often available.
