• Title 1 Information

    The Title I program in Wake County provides supplementary instructional support in the areas of reading and math. Schools qualify for Title I funding by demonstrating economic need among its population.

    All Title I eligible schools in WCPSS operate under the schoolwide model. This means that Title I funds may be used, with other school funding sources, to provide supports to all students so that they may meet our high academic standards. Title I is a federally funded program that is one component of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015. 
    The ultimate goal of the Title I Program is to aid students in acquiring habits, attitudes, knowledge, and skills necessary to function as successful members of the school community. Title I is a federally funded program.

    A Parent's Right To Know

     Parents have a right to:

    • Request information about staff members' credentials. Ask your child's principal about how to do this and/or check the school's website for information.
    • Know how your child's school is performing. The North Carolina School Report Card for your child's school will be sent home after it is released by the state. This typically occurs in November or December.
    • Previous school report cards
    • We believe it is important to provide parents with logical and detailed information about their schools. View ZMS Progress Report.
