ur nation’s schools. This program, authorized by Congress, provides supplemental funds to school districts to assist schools with the highest student concentrations of poverty to meet school educational goals.
Liberty County received over 300,000 dollars in 2009 - 2010 for this purpose. These funds are used to improve the education of children in high-poverty schools by implementing components such as Supplemental Educational Services, Parental Involvement, and Professional Development.
Services are provided for all students school-wide at W. R. Tolar K-8, Hosford Elementary and Jr. High and Liberty County High School. Title I initiatives are closely aligned with School Improvement plans at each Title I school. Our goals are to;
· Ensure accountability
· Provide research based professional development for teachers
· Provide instructional materials that are aligned with State academic standards
· Measure academic achievement
· Close the achievement gap between high and low-performing students
· Provide meaningful opportunities for parents to participate in the education of their children
