Title I is the nation’s largest federal assistance program for schools. Title I funds are provided to schools with large numbers of economically disadvantaged students. Title I schools design instructional programs and provide student services to supplement existing programs that are financed through local, state, and other federal funds. These additional funds are used to design strategies that meet the needs of students that are most at risk for school failure. Services may include implementing effective instructional practices, hiring teachers to reduce class size, purchasing materials and supplies, and hiring additional teacher assistants or other personnel. Parents are a very important part of the Title I program. Parents are encouraged to be active and involved in their child’s school.
Three Perquimans County Schools are currently Title I schools:
Perquimans Central School
Hertford Grammar School
Perquimans County Middle School
Our school-wide programs are not only based on effective means of improving student
achievement but also include strategies to support family engagement . Since family
engagement is a key component to student academic achievement, Title I schools
provide training to their staff to show them how to effectively include parents as partners
in their children's education. In addition, Schools provide materials and training to inform
parents on how to support the child's social-emotional and academic progress.
Parents in Title I schools also collaborate with educators to develop a written parent
involvement policy that is distributed to parents and to plan and implement
parent involvement strategies for the school.
