Lenoir County Public Schools’ Title I program is a federally supported program that offers assistance to educationally and economically disadvantaged children to help ensure they meet the state’s challenging academic standards. Our Title I programs provide instructional activities and supportive services to students over and above those provided by the regular school program.
All our elementary and middle schools, along with Lenoir County Learning Academy, operate schoolwide Title I programs. Schoolwide programs utilize a comprehensive school improvement process enabling the schools to serve all students.
Parent involvement is stressed in Title I schools. Our Title I schools are charged with developing strategies designed to afford parents substantial and meaningful opportunities to participate in the education of their children.
The purpose of Title II, Part A is to increase the academic achievement of all students by helping schools and districts improve teacher and principal quality and ensure that all teachers are highly qualified.
