Federal Programs

The Department of Federal Programs coordinates several federal and state education programs within the school district. Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015, provides funding to school districts to help ensure that all children, particularly those who are most academically at-risk, meet challenging state academic standards. Schools participating in the Title I program receive funds based on the percentage of students qualifying for free or reduced-price school meals. Title I programs are designed to ensure high standards for all, increase quality instructional time, improve instruction through professional development, enhance family participation in the educational process, expand educational resources, and strengthen accountability.  

Sixty-six schools within Gwinnett County Public Schools receive Title I services. Of these, 42 are elementary schools, 12 are middle schools, nine are high schools, and three are alternative schools. Sixty-six schools offer a schoolwide program where all students, teachers, and families benefit from the supplemental resources and support provided by Title I. Gwinnett has one charter school that will be served as a targeted assistance program. In a targeted assistance program, funds can only be used to support students identified as most academically at-risk, their families, and the teachers who serve them.  

Each Title I school has a Title I contact who will support families in promoting the academic achievement of students. Workshops and schoolwide events are offered to build the capacity of families to support their children academically. The local school's Parent Center offers resources and materials for families to checkout for use at home. Please visit the school’s website to view the Family Engagement Calendar of Events that outlines the dates and times of workshops and schoolwide events.
