Welcome to the Dickenson County Title I Page

 Title I is a federally funded program for schools with the highest percentages of children from low-income families.  All elementary schools in Dickenson County implement a School-wide model with the Title I Funds which allows for flexibility in serving all children based on their individual needs.  The goal of Title I is to close learning gaps and to help ensure that all students meet local and state academic standards.

In addition to many other things, Title I funds are used to help fund our Pre-K Classrooms, our elementary Technology Labs, and Reading/Math Resource Teachers in our elementary schools.

Newsletters are a way to stay in touch with parents and to build connections between home and school. The Dickenson County Public Schools Title I Program currently provides two newsletters for parents, Helping Children Learn for our preschool students, and Building Readers for our elementary school age students.  Helping Children Learn is packed with proven, evidence-based, ready-to-use school success ideas for parents, tailored to the ages of their preschool students!  Building Readers provides the evidence-based guidance and concrete recommendations that parents need to help their kids learn to read, and to read more proficiently.
