Title I is a federal program designed to offer supplemental services and supplies (above and beyond what other district schools receive) to schools with a high rate of poverty Federal requirement - Serve schools with over 75% of students on Free & Reduced Price Lunch Walton County serves our elementary schools with over 65% of students on Free & Reduced Price Lunch The goal of Title I is to give EVERY child a high-quality education.
In planning for the following year, the parents, administrators, teachers, and staff devise a plan to: Identify students who have the greatest need Measure student progress using the state standards Develop programs that help to supplement classroom instruction Involve parents in every part of the program (through participation in the School Parent Advisory Council).
The Florida Department of Education receives funding from the Federal Government. The Florida Department of Education sends an allocation to the districts based on the number of students that received Free and Reduced Priced Lunches the previous year and the plan for spending those funds submitted by the Title I Department. The School District receives funding from the State. In collaboration with the School District, the school determines the best services to provide using the funds and in accordance with the Title I/School Improvement Plan created by the school, submitted to the District, and approved by the FLDOE.
