Title I

Gordon Elementary School welcomes and encourages parental involvement in the education of their children. This page is designed to inform parents of involvement opportunities.

                                     Mission Statement
The mission of Gordon Elementary School is to provide students with opportunities to become academically successful citizens in a safe and secure learning environment where students, staff, family and community work together.

What is Title I?
Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act provides financial assistance to state and local educational agencies to meet the needs of educationally deprived, at-risk children.  The goal of Title I is to provide instructional services and activities to meet the needs of disadvantaged children identified as failing or most at risk of failing the state’s challenging performance standards.

                                      Read to Succeed
In June 2014, the South Carolina General Assembly passed Act 284 (Read to Succeed),as a monumental step toward closing the state’s achievement gap and increasing opportunities for all students in South Carolina. The goal of Read to Succeed is to ensure all students graduate from high school with the reading and writing skills they need to be college- and career-ready. Read to Succeed legislation is ground-breaking for South Carolina because it is comprehensive, systematic, and affects every educator and student in the state through eight components: 

1. State, district, and school reading plans 
2. Focus on third grade progression 
3. Summer reading camps 
4. Provision of reading interventions 
5. Requirements for in-service educator endorsements 
6. Early learning and literacy development 
7. Teacher preparation 
8. Reading Coaches
