• Norton Title I

Title I Program Overview

  • Title I is a federally funded program.  It is designed to help all students get a good education and meet academic standards. Norton's schoolwide Title I program offers services and programs that help improve the education of all students. Norton receives thousands of Title I dollars which is used to pay for the following:

    • Teacher salaries (which lowers the student/teacher ratio)
    • Staff development and release time for teachers to plan instruction
    • Extended learning time programs
    • Purchasing technology for classrooms
    • Purchasing consumable and non-consumable teaching materials
    • Paying presenters and childcare providers at parent workshops
    • Purchasing materials and resources for the Parent Center
    • Learning experiences

    All decisions regarding the Title I Program are made at 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 Beverly McKellar at 770-736-2015 or attend the next Title I meeting. Hardcopies of Norton's Title I School-Wide Plan can be found in the Norton Parent Center.
