Please visit Candler County School Improvement to learn more about our Federal Programs.

Candler County is a Title I School District. All schools in Candler County implement Title I Schoolwide Programs to meet the learning needs of our students. 

Title I is a federally funded program which provides services to schools based on student economic needs. Title I is the largest Federal Assistance Program for our nation's schools. The goal is to provide a high-quality education for every child, so the program provides extra help to students who need it most. These students are the furthest from meeting the standards the state has set for all children. The Career and College Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) is the Georgia ESEA Accountability Tool used to determine school progress. For more information on the district's CCRPI data visit www.doe.k12.ga.us.

Annually, we invite all stakeholders to participate in the Comprehensive LEA Improvement Planning (CLIP) which includes a comprehensive stakeholder needs assessment, planning for equity, Title I-A, Title I-C (Migrant), Title II-A, Title III-LEP, Title IV, Title VI-B, IDEA, Perkins Improvement, and Homeless Children and Youth coordination. Please review the FY17 plan and provide feedback!

The Candler County School District is committed to establishing partnerships with parents and the community and seeks out and encourages their participation in the development and revision of the District Comprehensive LEA Improvement Plan (CLIP) and the Title I Family Engagement Plan.  All school districts that receive Title I Federal Funds must revise each of these plans annually and must seek the input of parents and community members.

Comprehensive LEA Improvement Plan (CLIP) 2016-2017 - The Comprehensive LEA Improvement Plan (CLIP) is an application to apply for Federal funds from the Georgia Department of Education.  The  plan addresses how the district will serve students to meet their needs.  Please help us by reviewing the questions on the Candler County School District Comprehensive LEA Improvement Plan Recommendation Form and respond to those items where you would like to make recommendations or comments.

Family Engagement Plan 2016-2017 - The purpose of the Candler County School District Title I Family Engagement plan is to strengthen student academic achievement by implementing effective parental involvement strategies and activities. Please help us by reviewing the attached plan and making recommendations on the Title I Family Engagement Plan Recommendation Form.
