Gilchrist County School District is #1 in College/Career Acceleration!   
Title I, Part A – Education of Disadvantaged Children and Youth

Image 

 Title I, Part A, is intended to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments. As the largest federal program supporting elementary and secondary education, Title I targets these resources to the districts and schools where the needs are greatest. 

Bell Elementary School and Trenton Elementary School are both Title I School-Wide Projects. This means that Title I Entitlement Grant funds support supplementary personnel and services for those schools. The mission of Title I is “..to implement programs and services that ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.” Title I is currently funding teachers, an additional Reading Coach, Parental Involvement activities, professional development for teachers, and Extended School Day and Extended School Year services.   Each school’s School Improvement Plan guides the use of the Title I funds.   These funds may be used for supplies, equipment, travel, computer software, etc. Title I school eligibility is determined by the % of Free and Reduced Lunch students at each school.
Parent Right-to-Know

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 provides you, the parent, the opportunity to request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s teacher, such as certificate type (professional or temporary), subject area coverage / grade level of coverage, and degree(s) / defined major of study.  You may also request information regarding the qualifications of any paraprofessionals who are providing instructional services to your child. If you would like to request any of the above information, please contact your school’s principal.

School Public Accountability Reports (SPARs)

Title I schools are required to disseminate an annual school report card to parents. In addition to publishing a copy of this in the local newspaper, this report card is also made available to parents each year at the front officer of your child's school. SPARs also contain important school information for parents.  Please clink on the SPAR link in order to access a copy of this for your child’s school. A hard copy of this report may be obtained from the district office, upon request. Please contact your school’s principal or the Title I director at (352) 463-4408 if you have any questions or concerns after reviewing this year’s information. 

Private Schools
Public school districts are required to consult with private school officials in a timely and meaningful way in order to provide equitable services to private school children. For the current school year, officials from Riverside and First Place Academy private schools have not opted to participate in federal projects under No Child Left Behind. For more information or if you would like to provide input, please contact Patricia Powers at (352) 463-4408 or powersp@mygcsd.org

As a parent, you have the right to request parent meetings regarding Title I information. If you would like to request an informational meeting with the Title I Director, please contact the district office at (352) 463-3200. A NCLB Parent’s Guide is available online
