Title I is the largest federal education program which provides financial assistance to states and local educational agencies. In 2001, this federal legislation was reauthorized as "No Child Left Behind.” The goal of Title I is to ensure a high-quality education for all children so that they can reach proficiency on state academic standards as measured by challenging state assessments.

Status of Title I Schools
The Title I program adheres to the rules and regulations of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Under NCLB each Title I school is required to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) toward the goal of having all students score Exemplary in ELA and Math on PASS by the year 2014.
If Title I schools do not meet AYP for two consecutive years, they are identified as Needing Improvement and must offer parents School Choice, the option to transfer to another Saluda school. If a school does not make AYP for a third consecutive year, it is identified as in Continuing School Improvement and must offer School Choice and Supplemental Educational Services (after-school academic tutoring). If a school does not make AYP for the fourth consecutive year, it is identified as in Corrective Action and must continue offering School Choice and Supplemental Educational Services.
Based on these criteria, the AYP status of each Saluda Title I school is:
Saluda Primary Met AYP 2010, Not Met AYP 2011 School Year
Saluda Elementary Met AYP 2010, Not Met AYP 2011 School Year
