District Title I Plan Summary

  • Activities for 2019-2020

    The distribution of Title I funds to a school is based upon the number of students in the school who qualify for subsidized meals. For the 2019-2020 school year, Aiken County Public Schools allocated 5.2 million dollars to thirty-two public schools. These resources were distributed to schools where needs are the greatest and in amounts sufficient to make a difference in the improvement of instruction. 

    The portion of Title I funds not allocated to schools is expended on district-wide Title I activities to assist in improving the instructional program in all Title I schools and to ensure that the schools and the district continue to be in compliance with Title I regulations. If you have questions regarding the Title I Plan for district-wide activities, please contact Kristy Cansler, Director of Federal Programs.
