     Title I, Part A - Improving Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged

     Individual public schools with poverty rates above 40% may use Title I funds, along with other Federal, State, and local funds, to operate a "school wide program" to upgrade the instructional program for the whole school.  Water Valley School District operates school wide programs in order to benefit a larger student population.

     The purpose of these funds is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.

    Smaller classes or special instructional spaces

    Additional teachers and aides

    Opportunities for professional development for school staff

    Extra time for teaching Title I students the skills they need

    A variety of supplementary teaching methods

    Additional teaching materials which supplement core instruction
