The Rockcastle County School District receives federal Title I funds based on the percentage of students receiving free or reduced lunches. This money is used to fund staff members who provide extra small group and individual assistance to students; in addition, it provides a variety of instructional materials and activities. Title I funds also supplement the Reading Is Fundamental grant to help supply free books to primary students.
In this district, the three elementary schools receive the Title I funds. Each school qualifies for and has a school-wide program, which means that the Title I money is used to develop an instructional program from which all students can benefit. Staff and materials are used to give every student opportunities for success.
The Board of Education has developed a Title I Parent Involvement Policy that addresses ways in which staff and parents can work together to make the learning process effective for students. Each individual Title I school has its own policy and Parent/Teacher Compact.
