Stone Magnet Middle School is part of the Brevard Public Schools’ Title 1 Family. Title I is a federally funded program designed to improve achievement that meet the free and reduced percentage requirement of 74% or higher. The Title I project serves 40 public schools and 21 private schools in Brevard County.
For the 2022-23 school year, Stone received $421,497 to pay for services and programs for our students. Our goal is to help our students at Stone Magnet Middle School be successful learners. With the continual input and feedback from all of our stakeholders (parents, students, Stone faculty, community partners, and business partners), this process will help us plan together how these monies will be spent.
The Title I Vision
Title I provides support through resources and research-based training, enabling schools to develop high quality, enriched programs that meet the individual needs of all children, families, and staff.
By providing a positive, caring environment with high educational expectations, Title I safeguards that all individuals feel capable, connected, and able to make worthwhile contributions to their community. Title I schools design their own program, including grade levels and subject areas to be served, instructional models, and staffing plan based upon the unique needs of students at that school. Each school coordinates the Title I plan with the schoolwide improvement plan. It is important that all of our Stone Magnet Middle School families apply for free and reduced lunch. By doing this, it not only helps families that qualify for free lunch, but it also helps Stone Magnet Middle School continue as a Title 1 School. We hope to keep our Title 1 status of having at least 74% or higher with free and reduced application status.
If you have questions about applying or any questions about being a Title 1 School, I welcome you to contact our Title I Coordinator, Marykate Oppelt at 321-723-0741 ext. 35053 or email Oppelt.firstname.lastname@example.org.
