What is Title 1A?
Laurene Edmondson Elementary School is a designated Title 1A school. Our school receives federal funding to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Title 1A funding is based on census data for students aged 5-17 who reside within the boundaries of our school community. In Title 1A schools, 40% or more of students receive free or reduced-price meal service.
In Title 1A schools, improvements are designed to upgrade the school's entire educational program, and all children in the school benefit, regardless of economic background. Improving academic programs, providing professional development for teachers, increasing instructional time for students, and engaging in family and community outreach are all important components of Laurene Edmondson Elementary's Title 1A program.
