Title I Part A

Title I is the largest federal aid to the education program in this country. Title I programs enable qualifying schools opportunities for children served to acquire the knowledge and skills contained in the state core performance standards for all grades and to promote effective parent involvement. In Cherokee County, eligible schools use Title I funds for Pre-Kindergarten, additional teachers and aides, professional development, parent involvement programs and materials, supplemental instructional materials, and technology.

Schoolwide Programs can be implemented in schools that have at least 40% of the students from low-income families. Funds are blended to support the school program. Although they do not have to be used for a specific group of students, they should be used to support children most at risk of not meeting State standards. All Title I Schools in the Cherokee County School System implement the Schoolwide Program. Targeted Assistance Programs use funds to provide services to children identified as having greatest need for additional academic assistance. Cherokee County School System does not implement any Targeted Assistance Programs.
