|Gilchrist County School District is #1 in College/Career Acceleration!|
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.
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.
|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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
