Title I, Part A- Programs for Disadvantaged Children

Title I Program

Title I is a federal program that provides funds to schools and districts based upon the percentage of students qualifying to receive free or reduced price (school) meals. The purpose is to ensure that all children have access to quality instruction and resources that will enable them to meet the state academic standards.

There are 5 schools operating Title I programs in Appling County Public Schools. Each Title I Schoolwide Program has an on-site Parent Center, facilitated by a certified media specialist.  The system Parent Engagement Director is bilingual in English-Spanish.

Each Title I School is required to host workshops/trainings for parents that focus on the academic needs of the students. While many of these workshops/trainings occur during daytime hours, others are held in the evenings. Additionally, these workshops/trainings are repeated based upon attendance and parent requests. Interpreters (for Spanish speaking parents) and childcare are available.
