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.

February’s Title I virtual event is “Get Moving with Math”.

So often we hear that we should read to our children at home to help them become better readers. As true as this is, it is also just as important to participate in everyday practices that will help your child value and understand math. In fact, research has shown that numeracy skills can support children’s literacy abilities. The study of mathematics builds problem-solving skills and teaches children how to reason and seek solutions in a logical way.

To learn how to support mathematics instruction at home, please watch our featured Title I video produced by the teachers of Crawfordville Elementary School. Also please complete this survey to help us with planning future events!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

April’s Virtual Title I Parent and Family Engagement event focuses on preparing your child for the upcoming school year.
Please watch the following introductory videos from Nicholas Weaver, Principal, and students at Shadeville Elementary School.


After watching the introductory videos, review the presentation for the grade level your student will be in for the 2022-2023 school year: Important News
Florida’s Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.) Standards will be implemented in grades K-5th for both ELA and Math. View a brief overview of the B.E.S.T. Standards, here. More in-depth resources are available on the Florida Department of Education’s website.

Wakulla will administer the Florida Assessment of Student Thinking (F.A.S.T.) beginning with the 2022-2023 school year.

Preventing the Summer Slide
A summer slide is a decline in reading ability and other academic skills that can occur over the summer months when school is not in session. The number one thing you can do as a parent to prevent a summer slide is have your child read for at least 20-30 minutes every day.
All elementary schools will be open during the summer months for your child to come in to take an AR (Accelerated Reader) quiz on books they read. All tests taken during the summer will be included in their word count for the upcoming year. You can search for books with corresponding AR quizzes through AR Bookfinder.
