Department Overview

 

Title I is the single, largest federally funded program for elementary and secondary education in the nation.  Currently, we are still under The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.  Title I funding helps our school division provide equal educational opportunities for low-performing students in schools with economic need.  Bristol Virginia Public Schools currently supports all our elementary schools through Title I services, Pre-K through 5th grade.  Each school has a resource teacher who serves as the schools reading specialist and oversees the schools educational plan.  Our Title I schools implement a School-wide model which allows for flexibility in serving ALL children based on their individual need.  Each school host a school-wide team that meets twice a year to review and revise their schools plan as needed.  The goal of the Title I is to enable all students to be on grade level and to meet state and local standards.  Title I is committed to the shared effort of the achievement gap between all students in Bristol Virginia Public Schools and to provide high quality, engaging instruction that motivates students to become lifelong learners.  Parental involvement is a huge component of all of the Title I schools.
