A Catalyst for CHANGE
Title I dollars and other funding streams
work together in concert to help all children.
Title 1, Part A programs ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.
Flint Community Schools using Title I funds to support the community school approach allows the District to coordinate efforts with community partners to address the social, emotional, and academic needs of the whole child.
A whole child approach, which ensures that each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged, sets the standard for comprehensive, sustainable school improvement and provides for long-term student success.
A whole child approach to education is one which focuses attention on the social, emotional, mental, physical as well as cognitive development of students. At its core such an approach views the purpose of schooling as developing future citizens and providing the basis for each child to fulfill their potential.
Web accessibility refers to the practice of making sure that everyone, regardless of any kind of disability, can visit your site to use your services. The Title I website has been optimized for the following (most commonly used) screen readers:
Windows + Firefox or Chrome: NVDA (Free reader)
Mac + Safari: Voiceover (Built-in reader)
Android + Chrome: Talkback (Built-in reader)
iOS + Safari: Voiceover (Built-in reader)
ARIA attributes for screen readers; ALT image texts; form labels; clickable icons; and more. Removed animations and flashing GIFs that can trigger a seizure in people with some kinds of epilepsy.
The NVDA screen reader can be downloaded free of charge by anyone.
Please note: NVDA is only available for PCs running Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 and later. If you require a version of NVDA that can still run on Windows XP or Vista, please download the much older NVDA 2017.3 for Windows XP instead. NV Access does not however recommend or support running this older version on newer Operating systems.
IMPORTANT DISTRICT NOTICE
At Flint Community Schools, we are highly confident in the return to school plan we have in place for hybrid learning. Unfortunately, there were concerns regarding the sneeze guards—an additional safely measure that, while not a requirement for in-person learning, is something our Board members, families and staff have expressed a strong desire to have in place. For that reason, we are delaying the return to in-person learning until the issues regarding the sneeze guards have been resolved. In the meantime, all scholars should plan to continue with distance learning on Monday, February 22. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
