Family Engagement / Title I

  • Cohutta Elementary qualifies as a Title I school. Title I is a federal program that provides funding to help us provide a high-quality education for your children by a highly professional staff. Through funding, we are able to provide professional learning opportunities to our staff to help them stay abreast of proven instructional strategies and use our staff resources in ways to best benefit your child. Funding may also help purchase instructional materials and provide for more staff members in order to support our educational programs. Our students have met the achievement standards set by the state of Georgia guidelines. As a result, our school has not been identified as a Priority, Focus, or Alert school in need of improvement. In fact, we were awarded as a Beating the Odds school, meaning we outperformed schools similar to ours across the state. For more information regarding the achievement standards and the Every Student Succeeds Act and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI), please go to the Georgia DOE link on our school website.

    The biggest component of Title I is YOU, the parents and the community. As a team, we can work together to provide a high-quality education for your child. Last week you received a
    Parent/Teacher/Student Compact and our Family Engagement Policy. These were created using your input from last year and the beginning of this year. With input from students, parents, and teachers, this important document lists various ways in which we can all work together. Each year, you will be asked to complete our surveys to let us know how we are doing in specific areas. We provide these in both English and Spanish and each and every one of these are read and considered. With your opinions and ideas, we are able to work to create a safe learning environment.
