Better known as the No Child Left Behind Act 0f 2001. This act was developed with ideas to “close the achievement gaps between minority and non-minority students and between disadvantaged children and their more advantaged peers”. (Corey, Corey, & Callahan, 2005, p. 48.)
Schools must have 40% of their students eligible for free and/or reduced lunch. Hayden Elementary had 38% of students eligible for free and/or reduced lunch. We qualified because Hayden Primary School reached 40%, and they are considered a “feeder” school to us.
The Blount County School System’s Title I allocation for 2009-2010 was $1,848,153.00. 2010-2011’s budget should be about the same. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 – $1,101,851.00 which will be split between two years. $550,790.50 for 2009-2010 and for 2010-2011 school years.
District money set-aside before allocations are made to the schools: Administrative Costs Professional Development Neglected or Delinquent ELL Program Support Homeless Preschool – Materials and Supplies (Kid Crafters) Social Services (Social Worker) Health Services (Floater Nurse) Media Services (Young Authors Conference – Author Contracts) Instructional Staff Support (Consulting Teacher, BCRC Aide) Title I, Part C - Migrant Parent Involvement (1% of total allocation required to be set-aside )
Any LEA with a Title I Allocation exceeding $500,000 is required by law to set aside 1% of the Title I allocation for parental involvement. Each school gets a portion of money designated to be used for Parent Involvement. In Blount County, the schools agree to allocate a portion of their Parent Involvement money to be used to support the Parent Involvement Specialist and the activities and resources made available for all parents of Blount County School students and the Blount County Resource Center located in Cleveland, AL.
