Purpose of the Monthly Newsletter

All schools in Russell County are supported by Title I federal funds. Title I schools are required to set annual goals for school improvement, measure student progress using Alabama State Standards, and implement programs and services beyond what the district usually provides. The district and schools are also required to plan how they will involve parents and families in the education of their children. This newsletter is just one of many ways Russell County School District strives to keep families involved as well as educated on all Title I supports.

Annual Title I, Title II, and Parent Engagement Meeting

The annual Stakeholder meeting was held on August 25th from 5:45- 7:00 at the Warrior Training Center. All stakeholders have a right to know what is happening in their school district. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Mrs. Kimmel at kimmels@russellcsd.net.

Russell County School District

The Federal Programs Department administers federally funded education programs by providing assistance to schools in the Russell County School District. The primary goal is to improve achievement through increased parental involvement, teacher training, and additional student services. RCSD receives funding to administer programs under the federal mandate of "Every Student Succeeds Act."
