Title Information

The Federal Programs Department is responsible for the federal grants, Title I and Title II.  Our department facilitates and ensures compliance with ESSA and other Federal and State laws.  
 

What is Title I?  

Title I is the largest federally funded program in our nation’s schools.  It serves millions of children in elementary and secondary schools each year.  Through Title I, the Federal government gives money to school districts around the country based on the number of low-income families in each district.  Each district uses its Title I money for extra educational services for children who are experiencing difficulty with reading and/or mathematics in order that they may be successful in the regular classroom.

 

Which schools in our county have Title I programs?  

All five K-8 schools in Lincoln County receive Title I funding.  These schools are Title I school-wide project schools.  That means that every child is eligible for Title I help.

 

How are the Title I School-wide programs planned and evaluated?  Each school must have a plan that details how the school will meet the needs of all children.  This plan must include the five components of Title I schools.  Parents, teachers and principals work together to ensure that the plan will work to benefit children in making adequate yearly progress (AYP).  We invite parents to volunteer and serve on committees which plan and evaluate school-wide projects.

 

Title I Parents’ Right to Know

Parents of Title I children may request the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teachers and paraprofessionals.  If you would like this information, you need to contact the school’s office.  All paraprofessionals in the Lincoln Co. School System are highly qualified according to the state of Tennessee’s standards. 

 

Lincoln County’s Parent/Family Involvement Policy

Our school district has developed with parents, teachers and administrators a written parent/family involvement policy which has been adopted by the Lincoln County Board of Education.  The school system will provide technical assistance and other support to assist schools in planning and implementing the parent involvement activities included in this policy.  The parent/family involvement policy is available at your school.  If you would like to review and suggest changes in the policy for the next year, a staff member will be available during Parent/Teacher Conferences to assist you. If you have questions, you may contact your school.
