The mission of the Gadsden City School System is to prepare and inspire all students to become college and career ready through learning, serving, and excelling. Funding received through the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) legislation supplements our efforts to provide additional teachers and aides to work with struggling learners.  ESSA funding allows schools to furnish supplemental materials for students who need a variety of strategies to acquire the knowledge and skills contained in the state content and performance standards developed for all students and to promote effective parent involvement. The Title programs below assist us in meeting those standards.

Title I, Part A – School-wide Programs and Equitable Services Programs (Non-Public)

Title II – Preparing, Training, and Recruiting High-Quality Teachers and Principals        

Title III – English Learners

Title IV, Part A – Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grant

Title IV, Part B – 21st Century Community Learning Center After School Programs
