Title I Part A is a part of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). This act provides federal funds through the Georgia Department of Education to local educational agencies and public schools with high numbers or percentages of poor children to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards. In Oconee County Title I serves students through Targeted Assistance Programs which help ensure that eligible children receive assistance to meet performance standards.
Schools in Oconee County that are eligible for these federal funds include:
Funds are used to provide students additional segments of reading and/or math instruction by a certified, highly qualified teacher and/or paraprofessional, and support materials in reading and/or math. Funds are also used to promote parental involvement through an active parent involvement program at the school and system level.
Vision: Oconee County Schools will be a nationally-recognized leader in academic achievement by ensuring all students receive rigorous, balanced education that will enable them to compete in and contribute to a global society.
Motto: Committed to Student Success
