Title I

Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged

What is Title I?

Title I, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965, is the largest federal contribution to K–12 education. It consists of several funding streams for school districts and schools to supplement local educational programs and to help ensure that economically disadvantaged students are given the same opportunity to achieve state-defined academic standards as their peers.

In exchange for financial support, schools, districts, and states are held accountable for raising the academic performance of all students, narrowing the achievement gap between underachieving groups and their more advantaged peers, and enabling those most at risk to reach state academic standards.

The goal of Title I is a high-quality education for every child, so the program provides extra help to students who need it most. These are children who are the furthest from meeting the standards the state has set for all children.  Title I resources are directed to schools with high percentages of at-risk students.

21st Century Program

A 21st Century Community Learning Center provides academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high poverty and low performing schools.

The center helps students meet state and local educational standards in core academic subjects, mainly reading and math. It offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that complement their regular academic programs. The center also offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.

Please call the school office or contact Monica Stevenson for more information.

Athletics and Activities

A healthy body leads to a healthy mind. Southside believes that physical exercise and outside activities are essential to mental and psychological well-being. We encourage our students to be involved in activities outside of school hours. Check out these community programs:
