School-wide Planning

The goal of Title I is to provide funding for instructional services and activities which support students in meeting the state’s challenging performance standards. First, the federal government provides funding to each state. Then, the Mississippi Department of Education allocates this money to the school districts based on the number of low-income students attending that school. The school district disseminates our funds.

Earl Travillion Attendance Center is a School-Wide Title I School. If a school has a poverty rate above 40% then federal, state, and local funds are used to operate a “school-wide program” with the purpose of upgrading the instructional program for the whole school. These funds help support the Title I goals by providing:

  • Smaller classes
  • Additional staff
  • Teachers, assistants, tutors
  • Professional Development
  • Individualized Programs for students
  • Additional teaching materials and technology that supplement the regular classroom instruction

Parents have a voice in our Title I program. The ETAC Parental Involvement Plan ensures that the school will:

  • Invite and inform parents about Title I and explain their right to be involved
  • Offer a flexible number of parent meetings throughout the year
  • Involve parents in Title I planning
  • Provide parents with timely information about school programs, school performance profiles, their child’s individual assessments results, curriculum, assessments, and proficiency levels students are expected to meet
  • Include a school-parent compact
