Calling all parents—your participation makes a difference!
We are depending on parent feedback to help us evaluate our 2016-2017 Parent & Family Engagement program, and input on developing plans for 2017-2018. Parent/guardian participation in our 2017 Annual Title I Parent Survey will provide us with valuable information that will be applied to the development of school, and district, Parent & Family Engagement Plans. The survey will be available to March 31, 2017. To access the survey, please click here.

Sam D. Panter Named Title I Reward School
Sam D. Panter Elementary has been named to the 2016-2017 list of Title I Reward Districts and Schools. Reward Schools are Title I schools that fall into two categories: Highest-Performing and High-Progress. Panter was one of two Paulding County Elementary Schools named in the "High-Progress' category. That means our school is among the top ten percent of the state's Title I schools making the most progress in improving the performance of "all students" group over three years on the statewide assessments.
“Being recognized as a Title I Reward School is a huge honor,” said Paulding County School Superintendent Cliff Cole. “Every teacher in the district is working hard to change the lives of their students. The administration is focused on improving the performance of all student groups. I look forward to the continued success of these schools.”
Title I schools receive federal funding to be applied to additional services, support, and resources in support of enabling all students to achieve academic success. Paulding County has 13 Title I schools.
