What is Title 1?

Title I is the largest federal assistance program for our nation’s schools. The goal of Title I is a higher quality of education for every child. The program serves millions of children in elementary and secondary schools each year. Freeport Elementary School is a Title I school.

How does Title 1 work?

The federal government provides funding to states each year for Title I. The Florida Department of Education sends the money to the district. The school district identifies eligible schools and provides Title I funds. Freeport Elementary School implements a school-wide program, which means all students are served under Title I.

What do Parents have the Right to Know?

Parents can request and receive information on the qualifications of your child’s teacher; and be informed if your child is taught by a non-highly qualified teacher for four or more consecutive weeks. All FES teachers and paraprofessionals are highly-qualified.

Interested in joining?

FES has several school based committees that include parent members. This is in an effort to involve parents in the decision-making process. A letter was sent home the first week of school giving you the opportunity to let us know if you were interested in participating. If you didn't get a letter or are still interested, please contact Gay Pannell, at 892-1211, or [email protected]

Committees include- School Improvement Team, PTO, School Parent Advisory Council, and the District Advisory Council.
