How will GPCS use Title I funds?
1% of the GCPS Title I budget supports family engagement and is equally divided to all Title I schools to partially fund a parent support person and/or to fund family engagement at schools.
What is Title I?
Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015, provides funding to school districts to help ensure that all children, particularly those who are most academically at-risk, meet challenging state academic standards. Schools participating in the Title I program receive funds based on the percentage of students qualifying for free or reduced-price school meals. Title I programs are designed to ensure high standards for all students, increase quality instructional time, improve instruction through professional development, enhance family participation in the educational process, expand educational resources, and strengthen accountability.
Sixty-eight schools within Gwinnett County Public Schools receive Title I services. Of these, 42 are elementary schools, 12 are middle schools, 10 are high schools, three are alternative schools, and one charter school. Schools offer a schoolwide program where all students, teachers, and families benefit from the supplemental resources and support provided by Title I.
Parents Right to Know
Parents have the right to request information about the degree and qualifications of their child's teacher(s) and paraprofessional(s), if applicable. Please refer to the GCPS Student-Parent Handbook or contact your school's principal for more information.
Los padres tienen derecho a solicitar información sobre el título y las calificaciones del maestro(s) y paraprofessional(es) de su hijo, si corresponde. Consulte el Manual para Padres y Estudiantes de GCPS o comuníquese con el Director de su escuela para obtener más información.
