Title I Schoolwide Programssupport theGwinnett County Public Schools’ VisionTo become a system of world-class schools where students acquire the knowledge and skills to be successful as they continue their education at the post secondary level and/or enter the work force.
We are so happy to have you here as a member of our Title I Parent Advisory Committee (PAC). We will have two meetings in addition to this one over this school year.
Dates: January 19 & 20, 2011
April 20 & 21, 2011
During these meetings, we will share the Comprehensive LEA Improvement Plan (CLIP), Title I allocation and budget, and other Title I program and fiscal issues for you input.
Our goal is to provide you with information about Gwinnett County Public School’s (GCPS) Title I Program.
GCPS receives Title I funds from the federal government to provide additional resources to assist with the education of our children.
GCPS qualifies for these additional funds because a large percentage of the students in our Title I schools receive free or reduced price meals.
The Title I Program strives to ensure that every child is able to learn and perform at levels that meet or exceed the state academic standards.
The Title I federal funds help us achieve this goal.
The additional resources through these funds allow us to provide additional staff and enhanced instructional programs for all students.
The funds also support activities for our parents to be involved in their children’s education.

All 47 of our Title I schools are Schoolwide Programs. Each Title I school has a Schoolwide Plan which supports the Local School Plan for Improvement (LSPI) to address student needs to ensure their academic success.
In addition to state and local funds, each school receives Title I funds which help accomplish the goals that are outlined in the Schoolwide Plans.
Each Title I school has a very active Parent Center which is staffed with a full time Parent Instructional Support Coordinator (PISC) who is a certified teacher.
In addition, each school has a Parent Center which provides educational resources and workshops to support all parents in meeting the instructional needs of their children.
Each school has a The Title I Parent Involvement Policy and Action Plan which describe the school’s plan for involving you and other parents in your child’s education.
The Title I Parent Handbook which is sent home to each family includes detailed information about Parent’s Rights and the Title I program from the district, state, and federal level.
Parents receive invitations and reminders for all parent activities. These invitations and advertisements are provided in a variety of ways such as the schools’ websites, newsletters, flyers, calling systems, and marquis, etc.
Each school provides a Title I School/Parent Compact. The Compact is an agreement between the school, parent, and student to support each child to meet grade level expectations.
Research shows that when parents know what their children are doing in school and help support them at home, children will be more successful.
Parent Information Resource Center (PIRC) –
