Here at Grady, we are a Title 1 school. We are a School-wide Title 1 school based on our free and reduced meal application status. Title 1 schools, having at least 40% of its student population identified as low income, may use Title 1 funds, along with other Federal, State, and local funds, to operate a "school-wide" program to upgrade the instructional program for the whole school. We ended the 2015-16 school year with 36.73% of our students qualifying for free and/or reduced meal status. Falling below the 40% margin decreased our Title 1 funds for this school year. We are encouraging ALL parents to complete and submit an online meal application for the 2016-17 school year. Completing a meal application and qualifying for free or reduced meal status will help us in reaching the minimal percentage required to receive additional Title 1 funding for the 2017-18 school year.
