What is Title I?

Title I, Part A is a part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). This act provides federal funds through the Georgia Department of Education to local educational agencies (LEAs) and public schools with high percentages of poor children to help ensure that all children meet challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards.

GSMS is a  School-wide Title I School, and is not in need of improvement, according to Federal guidelines.  If you have questions pertaining to Federal programs at Gray Station, please contact Principal, Wes Cavender at (478) 986-2090 or Title I Director, Dr. Gail Wincey at (478) 986-3032.
