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.
