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

     

         Individual public schools with poverty rates above 40% may use Title I funds, along with other Federal, State, and local funds, to operate a "schoolwide program" to upgrade the instructional program for the whole school.  South Panola operates schoolwide programs in order to benefit a larger student population.

     

         The purpose of these funds is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.

     

        Title I, Part A-Basic funds generally provide for:

     

    • smaller classes or special instructional spaces
    • additional teachers and aides
    • opportunities for professional development for school staff
    • extra time for teaching Title I students the skills they need
    • a variety of supplementary teaching methods
    • additional teaching materials which supplement core instruction

    • Batesville Elementary School
    • Batesville Intermediate School
    • Batesville Middle School
    • Batesville Jr. High School
    • South Panola High School
