Title One Meetings Set For Darlington County School District
(August 9, 2012) – Title One schools in Darlington County School District will hold their annual parent meetings to discuss the Title One services that the schools receive and the requirements of the “No Child Left Behind Act” shortly after school opens on August 20, 2012.
Title One is the largest federal aid program for schools. Through Title One, the federal government allocates money to school districts around the country based on the income level of families in each district. Each district uses its Title One money to provide extra educational services to enhance the academic program at eligible school-wide sites so that children who lag behind in school are given the support they need to succeed.
Schools that serve families who meet certain income requirements can operate a school-wide Title One project. This means that all students in an eligible school can receive Title One services.
According to the law, each Title One school must hold an annual meeting soon after school begins to review the Title One services with parents.
There are sixteen (16) Title One School-wide sites in the Darlington County School District. Each of these schools will hold an annual meeting at their location after the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year. The Darlington County Title One school-wide sites are Brockington Elementary Magnet School for Science and Technology, Brunson-Dargan Elementary School, J.L. Cain Elementary School, Darlington High School, Darlington Middle School, Lamar Elementary School, Lamar High School, Pate Elementary School, Rosenwald Elementary/Middle School, Southside Early Childhood Center, Spaulding Elementary School, Spaulding Middle School, St. John’s Elementary School, Thornwell School for the Arts, Washington Street Elementary School and West Hartsville Elementary School.
Parents are encouraged to contact their child’s school to find out when the annual meeting will be held at that location or contact a Title I representative in the District Office at 398-2297 for more information.
