Question:  What is Title I?

Title I is a part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA-2015). This act provides federal funds through the Georgia Department of Education to local education agencies (LEAs) and public schools.  The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments.  

Question:  What is a Schoolwide Program School?

The purpose of Schoolwide Title I programs is to improve the entire educational program in a school which should result in improving the academic achievement of all students,particularly the lowest achieving students.  A schoolwide program school may use Title I funds to upgrade the school's entire educational program, rather than to target services only on identified children.

Question:  How can I determine if my child is being served by a qualified professional?

According to the No Child Left Behind statute, parents may request information about the professional qualifications of their child's teacher(s).  A parent may request any of the following:

·   Certification;

·   College major/graduate certification or degree held by the teacher;

·   Qualifications of the paraprofessional, if paraprofessional services are provided.

If you wish to request information concerning your child’s teacher’s qualifications, please contact the principal of the appropriate school.

Additional Information:
Any individual, organization, or agency (“complainant”) may file a complaint with Union County School System if that individual, organization, or agency believes and alleges that the school system is violating a Federal statue or regulation that applies to a program under the No Child Left Behind Act.  The complaint must allege a violation that occurred not more than one (1) year prior to the date the complaint is received, unless a longer period is reasonable because the violation is considered systemic or ongoing.
