What Title programs do we have in the JCSD? • Title I – A • Title II • Title III • Title IV • Title V
What are allowable expenditures for Title funds? • Title I – Schoolwide is based upon schools with 40% or higher of free/reduced lunch rate. The purpose is to implement programs that increase student achievement through efforts that impact the whole school. • Title II monies may be used for professional development, class-size reduction, recruitment, and retention.
Allowable Expenditures cont. • Title III is used to supplement services for English Language Learners. • Title IV is utilized for drug prevention, awareness, character education, and safe and orderly schools. • Title V is very flexible and can support other federal programs or can be used for such items such as school nurses, computer technicians, or media resources.
Allowable Expenditures continued….. • Remember that all Title programs relate to No Child Left Behind and, as such, are tied to accountability, assessment, parental involvement, research-based programs, and highly qualified staff; therefore, if a district does not meet all the mandates of NCLB, sanctions will be imposed on the district.
Who determines how Title monies are spent in Jackson County? NCLB mandates that the following guidelines be set aside for district use: • Parent Involvement – 1 % of annual budget if the district receives over $500.000. • Professional Development – 5 % of budget must be used for professional development activities. • Administrative – No more than 20 % of budget may be spent on administrative costs.
NCLB Mandates Continued… • Equitable Services for Private School Students – We must ensure that students living in the JCSD but attending private schools receive and equitable amount. • Individual schools and the district as a whole conduct needs assessments to determine how the remainder of funds are spent.
What schools are served by Title I and II in the JCSD? • East Central Lower Elementary • East Central Upper Elementary • St. Martin East Elementary • St. Martin North Elementary • St. Martin Upper Elementary • Vancleave Lower Elementary • Vancleave Upper Elementary
Why were these schools chosen as Title Schools? Based on the free/reduced rankings and needs assessments, it was felt that the elementary schools could gain the most benefit from supplementary funding. Research has proven that if schools reach children early and remediate as needed, the chances of academic problems at the secondary level will decrease.
