Title 1

The Perkins Local School District receives funds from the United States Government under Title I, Part A to support a schoolwide program designed to met the needs of any student in the area of language arts and/or math at Furry Elementary and Meadowlawn Intermediate School. Qualification as a school wide title 1 program is based upon the poverty level counted in the most recent census data being at or above 40 percent. All students are eligible to participate in all aspects of the schoolwide program. The statute requires schools to particularly address the needs of low-achieving children and those at risk of not meeting the state student academic achievement standards

As a schoolwide program, Perkins uses Title I, Part A funds to engage in reform strategies that increase the amount and quality of learning time and help provide a high-quality curriculum for all children, according to a comprehensive plan to help all children to meet the state’s challenging standards.
