Federal Programs

  • To align, monitor and continuously improve Title I services to all Title I schools with a focus on priority schools.


Title I Federal Programs

Fourteen of the fifteen elementary schools in Craven County receive Title I funds each year to focus efforts on improving the academic achievement of disadvantaged students.  Federal dollars are used to purchase materials and equipment, plan and implement high quality student centered programs, professional development, and to hire additional staff in order to enhance instruction and better meet the needs of all students.  Each Title I school maintains a school-wide status which allows all students enrolled in the school to benefit from Title I teacher support, as needed.

The Title I program, both at the district and school level, plays a major role in parent support and family outreach efforts.  Each of the fourteen elementary schools has a parenting center located in a central area that contains resources, many of which can be checked out by parents for use at home.  Parent trainings and activities are also planned and offered at these schools throughout the year.
