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.

Title I Parent Resource Center


PRC GamesPRC Shelf

The Title I Parent Resource Center is located at Sandlick Elementary School in Room 16.  Parents can check out fun educational materials such as books, puzzles, games, and many other unique interactive resources to help their children build valuable reading and math skills. If parents cannot come to the school to check out the materials, they can simply complete a request form (click the link below) and the materials will be sent to the appropriate school and then home with the student.  Materials can be kept for two weeks or longer if needed, and then parents can send the materials back school with the child to be returned to the Resource Center.

Newsletters are a way to stay in touch with parents and to build the connections between home and school.  Dickenson County Public Schools Title I Program currently provides two newsletters for parents.  These newsletters are great resources for parents as they are full of tips, suggestions, and guidance each month.   You can click and read them below.
