TITLE I Programs

Title I Distinguished District

Purpose of Title I, Part A

Title I is a federal program that provides opportunities for the children served to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the challenging state content standards as measured by the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT), the Georgia High School Graduation Test (GHSGT), and End Of Course Testing (EOCT). Title I resources are distributed to schools where the needs are the greatest. Decisions for the utilization of these funds are made at the school level by the school governance teams ensuring that parents have a voice in the way Title funds are spent. Decision making at the district level also includes parental input by means of a Federal Programs Parent Advisory Committee. This advisory committee is made up of parents, teachers and administrators who meet at least once a quarter to discuss Title programs throughout the district.

Title I, Part A is a part of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). This act provides federal funds through the Georgia Department of Education to local educational agencies (LEAs) and public schools with high percentages of poor children to help ensure that all children meet challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards.


Title I, Part A - Parental Involvement

Marietta City Schools (MCS) is committed to the mission of preparing each of our students through academic achievement for life success. The district recognizes that parents are the child's first and most important teacher and encourages parent engagement in all Title I programs and other educational programs such as Early Intervention Program (EIP), English Learners (EL), Neglected and Delinquent, and Special Education. The MCS Parental Involvement Plan supports and encourages a positive relationship between the home and the school. A continuous effort is made to nurture the partnership with the parents and the school community. The MCS Parental Involvement Plan is written and approved by the system level Federal Programs' Advisory Committee which is composed of stakeholders including administrators, teachers, community members, and parents. The Advisory Committee meets quarterly to discuss parent involvement issues and disseminates helpful information to parents in the schools.

The purpose of parental involvement under Title I is to promote active engagement among local school officials and staff, education leaders, technical assistance providers, parents, parent advocacy organizations, parental involvement coordinators/ liaisons, and others working to improve student achievement and learning.
