TITLE I is the federal aid program for our nation's schools. Smyth County receives an allocation to be used in schools with high poverty levels. The goal of TITLE I is a high quality education for every child. The program provides extra help and instruction to students who need it the most. These children are furthest from meeting the state's standards for all children. TITLE I programs encourage high expectations and provide instruction to accelerate student progress in basic and higher order thinking skills. Student progress is measured annually and programs are evaluated and revised to assure student success. Progress is reported to parents. Parental involvement is encouraged in all aspects of the TITLE I program.
