Title I, Part A: Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged

What is Title I, Part A?
Being a Title I, Part A school means receiving federal funding to supplement the school’s existing programs. These dollars can be used for…
  • Identifying students experiencing academic difficulties and providing timely assistance to help these students meet the State’s challenging content standards.
  • Purchasing supplemental: staff, programs, materials, and supplies.
  • Conducting parent and family engagement meetings, training's, and activities.

Title I is the largest federal assistance program for our nation’s schools. The amount of money given to each school depends on the number of low-income families enrolled in the school.

Goals of Title I
  • Increase academic achievement.
  • Provide direct instructional support to students.
  • Provide professional development for teachers.
  • Promote parent and family education and involvement.

The main goal of Title I is to provide a higher quality education for every child.

January's Virtual Event: Mystery Science

Please watch this introduction video from the principal of Riversink Elementary School, Simeon Nelson. 


STEM education refers to the subjects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics and is usually presented through hands-on and relevant real-world learning experiences. STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators.

The U.S. Department of Education outlines that parents do not need STEM degrees to help children learn science. Armed with just a magnifying glass and going outside, parents can teach kids about the world by asking children to observe, ask questions, and think about what they see about everything, from bugs to mud puddles.

For January’s Title I Virtual Event, Wakulla County School District would like to introduce you to a free STEM resource called Mystery Science.

Mystery Science offers online science activities that are super easy to use and have outstanding content. Activities on specific topics are designed for students in kindergarten through fifth grade with the goal of developing a positive attitude toward science. All lessons are aligned with Florida’s Next Generation Science Standards.

You can access the informational flyer about how to log in to Mystery Science and complete the activities for this virtual event here:
