According to the U.S. Department of Education, the purpose of Title 1 funding, “is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach, at minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments." The basic principles of Title 1 state that schools with large concentrations of low-income students will receive supplemental funds to assist in meeting students' educational goals. Low-income students are determined by the number of students enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program. For an entire school to qualify for Title 1 funds, at least 40% of students must enroll in the free and reduced lunch program.

Please be reminded that right upon the students' return on Monday April 10th, students will be taking the GA Milestones Assessment in English and Writing on April 12th and 13th. We are advising that students take one hour each day of Spring Break to review the English GA Standards of Excellence with use of educational Youtube videos. Youtube and Teachertube is accessible daily via cell phone, tablets and computers. This practice will help refresh students on each English standard. Standards can be found on the Georgia DOE website or here at the Young Middle School website if students do not have a list of the standards. Thanks so much for taking charge of your student's education and continuing to support excellence. Have a safe and productive Spring Break!
