EARLY CO., GA (WALB) -

Schools all over the country are working to help challenged and at-risk students succeed.

Title I provides extra funding for schools with high numbers of those students. 

Two schools in Early County are Title I schools. 

Each year, they get roughly $1.3 million from the state.

They must present a consolidated local educational agency improvement plan to show where they will be using the money. 

Typically, the money goes toward intervention teachers, class-size reductions and parent involvement coordinators.

Right now the school department is finalizing their plan.

"Bottom line is we all sit together as a team and try to come up with a program, a set of plans that can make our school system stronger," said ECSS Federal Programs Director Will Jester.

The Early County School System is looking for parents' input. 

They will be holding a meeting Thursday night at 6 p.m. at the Early County Middle School.
