Federal Program Information

about 1 year ago

As school-wide Title I schools, each school in the Henderson County School System receives additional federal funding to supplement our instructional programs.  Our Teacher Assistants, working under the direction of classroom teachers, are valuable resources in our focus on reading instruction.  Parent involvement is critical to the success of our children.  As meetings are scheduled at your school, please make plans to attend and participate as often as possible.  For more information on how Title I enhances HCSD instructional programs call our central office at 968-3661(extension 1215)


How Title I Supplements HCSD Instructional Programs

  • Instructional Programs - McGraw-Hill Reading Program, Accelerated Reading, Star Reading, Ames Webb Early Literacy, ThinkLink, A + Learning System, IXL Math, and Study Island
  • Personnel including additional Paraprofessionals – Teacher Assistants
  • Professional Development Opportunities 
  • Supplies and Materials to support Instructional Programs
  • Parental Involvement Opportunities


These programs are provided by the Henderson County School System and supplemented by the Title I Program.  The Title I Program and the Henderson County School Board of Education affirm they do not discriminate against individuals on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, handicapping condition or age.


ANNUAL TITLE I PARENT MEETINGS

about 1 year ago


Each school has an annual Title I meeting. You will receive a letter informing you when the meeting will be held at your child's / children's school. As these meetings become known, they will also be announced here. Please make plans to attend if at all possible. This meeting will provide you with an opportunity to learn about our Title I program. Also, policies, procedures, and curriculum that your child will be required to follow and study will be discussed. This meeting is also another opportunity for the school to get information from parents about what they would like to see included in the school program.
