Title I is the largest Federal Assistance Program for our Nation’s schools. It allocates services and support to schools based on student economic needs. With the additional support of Title 1, our students receive a quality education where they learn about the world around them and then see the impact their own actions have on the world.

At Devereux Ackerman Academy, we believe that families are valuable members of the community and your opinions and suggestions regarding education of your child are important to the success of our school. As partners in your child’s education, your input is valued. Cobb County School District Title I Department appreciates the partnerships we have with our families. As the parent/guardian of a child attending a Title I school you are an important part of the Title I team. Your input is vital in the planning and implementation of the family engagement program and activities in our schools and those provided by the District. The focus of all Title I programs is to help eligible students meet the same high academic achievement standards expected of all children, regardless of their socioeconomic status and background. The following surveys are confidential and will be used to assist us with future planning for family engagement initiatives and events.

I give the school high marks for communicating with me about my child’s progress. Even though I live too far away to visit as often as I would like, I always feel informed and know what is going on.
