• Title I Information

What is Title I?

  • Britt Elementary School is a Title I school in good standing. We have not been classified as a Focus, Alert or Priority school by the state of Georgia.  Title I is a federally funded program resulting from the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. It is designed to help all students get a good education and meet academic standards. Britt's schoolwide Title I program offers services and programs that help improve the education of all students. Britt receives thousands of Title I dollars  which is used to pay for the following:

     
    1. teacher salaries (which lowers the student/teacher ratio)
    2. staff development and release time for teachers to plan instruction
    3. extended learning time programs
    4. purchasing technology for classrooms
    5. purchasing consumable and non-consumable teaching materials
    6. paying presenters and childcare providers at parent workshops
    7. purchasing materials and resources for the Parent Center
    8. learning experiences

     

    All decisions regarding the Title I Program are made Title I Planning Meetings. These meetings are open to all parents who wish to attend. Planning Meetings help decide which topics are offered at our Parent Workshops, how the Title I funds should be spent, what materials should be purchased for the Parent Center, writing, revising, and approving Title I Documents, and help analyze data based on our end-of-the-year parent surveys. If you are interested in participating in our Title I Planning Meetings, please contact Cindi Toledo at 678-639-3884 or attend the next Title I meeting. Hardcopies of Britt's Title I School Wide Plan can be found in the Britt's Parent Center, the office of Britt's Assistant Principal for Title I, the Media Center, and in the office of Federal and Special Programs at the Instructional Support Center, 437 Old Peachtree Road, Suwanee, Georgia.
