Title I Public Meeting Presentation - May 2, 2014 - English | Spanish

Title I is a part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) formally No Child Left Behind.  Title I programs are designed to provide additional educational opportunities for where student needs are the greatest.  In Title I schools, students receive additional opportunities to help them meet our state’s performance standards.

On July 19, 2012, the South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) was granted approval by the U.S. Department of Education to implement an ESEA Flexibility Waiver. Under South Carolina's approved waiver, schools and districts receive a letter grade (A-F) for performance and/or progress made on the 2012 Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) test. Schools who do not attain Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) also receive a letter grade in addition to a designation of Priority or Focus School. The Priority and Focus schools’ designations replaces the previous schools “in improvement” status.  Priority Schools are schools that have been identified as being in the lowest 5% of schools based on overall performance.  Focus Schools are schools that have been identified in the lowest 10% within a subgroup(s) where an achievement gaps exist.

Priority and Focus schools must offer both Public School Choice and Supplemental Education Services (SES). Public School Choice provides students and families the options to transfer to a higher-performing school.  Supplemental Education Services (SES) provides free tutoring by approved South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) Supplemental Education Services (SES) providers to enrolled students. Students are eligible to participate in SES regardless of free/reduced lunch status.

Our 2013-2014 Priority Schools are Lakeview Middle and Tanglewood Middle

Parent Involvement

Parent involvement is extremely important.  A strong connection between parents and the school is a key element for student success. Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires schools to allocate Title I funds to support parent involvement. These funds are used for, but not limited to, parent workshops and trainings and opportunities for active parent participation. 

As a parent of a student enrolled at a Title I school, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of your child’s teachers and assistants.  Federal law allows you to ask for the following information and requires our district to give you this information in a timely manner:
