What is Title I?
The Okaloosa Academy Charter School is excited to announce our eligibility for Title I. Title I is a federal program that aids schools with funding based on the percentage of students in need of free and reduced lunches. Okaloosa Academy is looking forward to being able to offer more resources for its students from this funding.
Some upcoming changes from Title I will be the new and improved computer lab with a variety of desktops and laptops for student learning and credit recovery computer programs designed to propel students to achieving their high school diploma. Additional funding will go to much needed resources in our classrooms providing both teachers and students enrichment and diversity in instruction.
Finally, Title I supports parent involvement and education. We will be offering resources and other ways to build our parent teacher relationships assisting with parents’ concerns and inquiries about their students’ education.
Below are a list of links to help you, as a parent, learn more about Title I and help plan for your child’s future.
